Originally posted on the hero's quest:
Piazza Navona was one that I visited more than once while in Rome, but it was my first experience there that sticks out as special in mind. We went out as a group at night, looking for dance club on a Sunday night (some fun bonding time with the group) but were unsussceful. We searched up and down the streets on beautiful Rome, but did not find the club. Instead—we somehow stumbled upon Piazza Navona… and I was instantly taken back to reading Hughes before the trip: “Some of the most wonderful first glimpse of Rome, for me, were quite unexpected and rather close to accidental” (10, Hughes). I longed for this experience, but you never actually believe it will happen to you; I walked down narrow streets, most of which had bars packed neatly inside the walls, and then the street opened up onto a stunning piazza with two fountains.
