It is not all that easy to define a 'city centre' in Rome. For reasons that lie in Rome long history, it does have in a very real sense more than one centre. As Momcat rightly identifies, the area of Piazza Navona, the Pantheon etc is perhaps the closest you can come to defining a Rome city centre now. In ancient times, this area, known as the Campus Martius, was outside the centre, and for much of its history outside the city altogether, In the medieval period however, Rome was almost deserted, and when it began to build back up again, it was this area, on the direct approach to the Vatican, that was built up, and for several centuries Rome was largely confined to this area as you can see in Rome city centre map.
