To book a bed and breakfast in Piazza Navona in Rome (Navona square) means that you will be close to one of the most important squares of Rome. It was originally the Stadium of Domitian, a stadium for athletics, and the aspect that has now begun to be realized from 1570 with the two fountains side, the Fountain of the moor (made by Della Porta and Bernini continued) and the Fountain of Neptune (Della Bitta and Zappala), both commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII.

The Fountain of the Moor is an Ethiopian fighting with a dolphin, while the newts that surround it are only copies, as the originals are placed on some of the fountains of the Villa Borghese. The fountain of Neptune sees Neptune fighting an octopus.

But when someone of you imagine to rent a b&b in Rome Piazza Navona is because in his mind is the most famous Fountain of the square, that is the Fountain of the Four Rivers. It was commissioned by Pope Innocent X by Bernini, in the middle of the baroque period, in 1651. The fountain represents the four corners of the world , representing them as the four rivers, namely the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile and the Rio de la Plata. The obelisk in the center above them came from the Circus of Maxentius on the Appian Way, where it was found. In front of this is the Church of St. Agnes in Agony (1655) by Borromini. The famous rivalry between the two has created many legends, some unfounded, but more reliable. It tends to interpret the  arm raised by the Rio de la Plata and the Nile as a gesture of disgust or horror for the church, built by his rival Borromini, but the date of the church is back, so it is more reliable interpretation according to which the statue of St. Agnes has a hand on his chest and has a look of confusion as a result of her view of the fountain.
