Walk the streets of Rome, and from the residents to the shop windows, it’s clear that this is a fashion-focused city. When shopping, keep an eye out for signs that say saldi (Italian for “sale”), as significant discounts are typically offered during winter and summer. Here are a few areas to check out during a shopping trip to Rome.
Via del Corso
Stroll along Via del Corso, a shop-lined boulevard near many historic landmarks. Expect brands such as Zara and H&M alongside Italian leather shops, stores devoted to shoes, and designer brands like Furla. If you need a break from shopping, stop by a gelato or chocolate shop for a refreshment.
Splurge on luxury brands during a wander along Via Condotti, home to upscale fashion houses, including Gucci, Bulgari, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana. If luxury goods aren’t in your budget, join other fashion lovers in window-shopping and checking out the sleek displays.
Explore the hip Monti neighborhood. Walk along Via Urbana and Via del Boschetto to find furniture stores, vintage clothing shops, and one-of-a-kind boutiques. The weekend market, Mercato Monti, is also worth a visit.
Venture into the polished neighborhood of Prati to browse through small, local, independent shops showcasing clothing, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. You’ll find a few brand-name options as well.
Castel Romano Designer Outlet
Travel 20 minutes outside Rome to shop at this designer outlet center with a long list of brands all in one place. Find names such as Burberry, Furla, Hugo Boss, and Missoni alongside smaller Italian brands. Some tours provide round-trip transportation to the outlets.
