Rome is well known for its sumptuous shopping; there are areas of the city that dazzle with glamorous designer boutiques and palatial flagship stores, while in others the stores are small, quirky and full of character.
For the best international luxury shopping head for the area near the foot of the Spanish Steps, in particular prestigious and exclusive Via dei Condotti and Via Borgognona. Wander to buzzing Via del Governo Vecchio for trendy boutiques and beautiful Via Giulia for art and antiques. When it’s time to take a breath, stop and sample “la dolce vita” with Via Vittorio Veneto’s famous, romantic sprawl of chic cafés and bars.
