Milan might be Italy’s fashion capital, but Rome doesn’t stay behind!

From the streets to the malls, you will be lured by design boutiques, quirky cafés and souvenir shops.

Before you know it, you will be swiping your credit card everywhere!

Via Condotti

Prada, Armani and Gucci all meet at Via Condotti!

Whether you’re window shopping or willing to splurge on a designer outfit,  this street will satisfy your fashion cravings.

Besides gathering the largest number of Italian retailers in Rome, Via Condotti is also home to Caffé Greco – the meeting point for many past figures like Goethe and Liszt.

Today you can still spot some celebrities here – walking around with their exclusive purses.

Via del Boschetto

Via del Boschetto is a haven for vintage seekers!

From shoes to jewelry, the shops are stashed with retro items and handmade crafts.

The street is located in Monti, one of the hippest neighborhoods in Rome!

Via Cola di Rienzo

Hop on the metro to Lepanto or Ottiviano and make your way to Via Cola di Rienzo!

This busy stretch has everything you can imagine, including high-end shops, ice cream vendors and grocery stores.

If you’re feeling homesick, “Castroni” is your best source for international food in Rome and is located on number 196. A few doors down, you have “Franchi”, a great place to stock up on Parmigiano cheese and many other Italian treats!

Via del Babuino

This old street had several names throughout the years, until it settled as Via del Babuino thanks to the baboon-aspect of the statues implemented here during the 16th century.

Along with designer shops, Via del Babuino also has one of Rome’s best bookshops – Punto Touring Roma.

Among the street’s famous residents are the composer Franz Liszt and the essayist Elémire Zolla.

Euroma2

Come rain or shine, you can always seek refuge at Euroma2!

This three-floor shopping centre is considered one of the biggest ones in Europe. Like many of its kind, it features chain stores, cafés and restaurants for all tastes and budgets.

You can reach Euroma2 by taking the metro to EUR Fermi, followed by a bus to Colombo/Pacifico.

Castel Romano

Outlet fans should plan a visit to Castel Romano!

Located 20km away from the city centre, here you will find designer brands like Burberry, Dolce & Gabanna and Roberto Cavalli with discounts up to 70%.

The stores are lined up like an old village and all the facades resemble ancient Roman monuments!
