Probably my favorite place in Rome. Filled with artists and activity and food, the Piazza Navona is a nice place to stroll in the evening. DO KEEP MOVING, THOUGH. The Piazza is filled with Gypsies just waiting for you to sit down or stand still so that they can pick your pocket or otherwise take advantage of you. A girl in my group sat down and this Gypsy started braiding her hair with thread, when she objected, the Gypsy took a pair of scissors and was going to cut that lock out. She luckily got away, but you've got to use common sense and be aware of your surroundings.
