“The Unique square with the beautiful fountain of the Four Rivers designed and built by Bernini, originally was a Stadium. Piazza Navona, at the time of ancient Rome, was the "Stadium of Domitian" and could accommodate 30,000 spectators. The stadium was used exclusively for athletics competitions. In ancient times the square was concave, the closures of the three fountains were blocked and the water came out in order to flood the square where water games were organized”

Monument / Landmark
“ At the beginning of the seventh century  the Pantheon was converted into a Christian basilica  called Santa Maria della Rotonda  or Santa Maria ad Martyres , which allowed it to survive almost intact to the plundering inflicted by the popes on the buildings of classical Rome. It enjoys the rank of minor bascilica. The inhabitants of Rome popularly called it Rotonna.("la Rotonda"), from which the name of the square and of the street in front [”

“During your walks to explore the capital I suggest you to take a short coffe break at the famous Sant'Eustachio Caffè, in the square Sant'Eustachio 82. If you raise your eyes when you pass by the church of St.Eustace, a hundred meters from the Pantheon and a few steps from Piazza Navona, you will notice the unmistakable shape of a stag's head sculpted in marble at the top of the facade. This unusual church decoration is an allusion to the life of St.Eustace who lived in Rome at the time of Emperor Trajan and was a pagan army general, before converting to Catholicism. The legend says that during a hunting party, he saw a luminous cross surmounted by the figure of Christ in between the antlers of the stag he was pursuing.”

Gourmet Shop
“The Roscioli selections Roscioli is a name encompassing many culinary facets, in one operation. The Ristorante, the Salumeria, the Antico Forno, the Caffè Pasticceria, the Rimessa, and the Wine Club. All places of taste, skillfully managed and coordinated, where you can find the best of Roman, Italian, and international production, selected with great skill and passion over the years. The Roscioli family Roscioli is a family that, for four generations, has worked in the world of hospitality, food, and wine. It all started with the bakery on Via dei Chiavari. Then our set-up developed with the grocer on Via Giubbonari, which we now know as Ristorante Salumeria Roscioli. Antico Forno Roscioli is one of the historic brands of Rome; certificates have been recovered that attest to its presence in the Regola district since the first half of the 1800s. A papal edict arranged for the establishment of a bakery that would sell bread at affordable prices to people with limited financial ability right on Via dei Chiavari, and the Vatican census dated August 17th, 1824 confirms it all. Roscioli today Roscioli today is still a family: Alessandro and Pierluigi, two brothers who carry on the tradition, not allowing it to disappear as a custom of the past, but keeping it with the times, anticipating today’s food and wine needs, and focusing, with great passion, on the high quality of their selections.”
