Piazza Navona, which follows the size and shape of the old "Stadium of Domitian". Pope Innocent X decided to embellish the area in honour of his family, the Pamphilj; various kinds of performances, celebrations, and even naval battles were organized in the square until the 19th century. The splendid area is dominated by the ''The Fontana del Nettuno or Calderari and the Fontana del Moro'' at either end of the square, and by the central "Fountain of the Four Rivers", designed by Bernini between 1648 an 1651. Opposite the Bernini's masterpiece, on the ruins of an ancient basilica, stands the Church of San'Agnese in Agone in Greek cross plan, completed in 1652 by Borromini.

Piazza del Popolo, placed at the apex of the famous triangle of roads, the 'Tridente', is a great access to the heart of Rome. The square, one of the most beautiful in Rome, has gradually formed throughout the centuries: in 1589 Pope Sixtus V erected the ancient Egyptian obelisk that stands in the centre, and almost a century later the two 'twin churches' of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto were built. In the 19th century the square took on the grand oval thanks to the work of Giuseppe Valladier, the favourite architect of Napoleon and the master of the gardens of Pincio.

The elegant Via del Babuino (Baboon Street) connects Piazza del Popolo with Spanish Steps; the origin of its name is curious: in 1571 a fountain adorned with a statue of a Silenus was built, but the people did not like it and likened its features to a baboon.
