Piazza Navona has all the qualities that a great square should have.
When asked, “What is the greatest square in the world?”, many would say Piazza Navona. Why? Because it has all the qualities that a great square should have: major attractions, such as Bernini’s great fountain; excellent programming (including one of the world’s best Christmas markets); lively uses at the edges; and a design so flexible it is filled with people even at night and in the dead of winter.
