The Pantheon is beautiful at night and the surrounding piazza fills with impressive performers. There's a relatively famous coffee shop (Tazza d'oro) right off the piazza, and it's a short walk to many other sites.

This fountain is located near the Pantheon. It is a great place for a photo or to take a break from walking through the Centro Storico.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
