Shopping Abroad: A Traveler's Guide

Rome's most magnificent shops are clustered on streets branching off from the elegant Piazza d'Spagna (the Spanish Steps). The chic-est of chic stores are found on Via Veneto and Via Condotti; more mainstream (and affordable) stores are on the long Via del Corso. Take a coffee break at Antico Caffe Greco (Via Condotti 86), a place to see and be seen since it opened in 1760.

For reasonably priced clothing, shoes and jewelry, walk along Via Cola di Rienzo, which runs from Piazza Risorgimento to the Tiber River.

For leather goods at relatively affordable prices, try busy Via Nazionale between Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza Venezia.

Antique stores are clustered on Via del Babuino.
