She’s not exactly a bastion for bargain-hunters, but shopping in Rome can also mean window shopping, now can’t it? And there are designer outlets and department stores all over the city, both to shop in and stare at.
The Piazza di Spagna is a beautiful square noted for the famous Spanish Steps, but the piazza and its main road, Via Condotti, have become home to Rome’s most exclusive shopping district where flagship stores like Prada and Gucci line the streets.
The ritzy stores of Piazza di Spagna give way to chic boutiques on the way down Via del Babuino toward Piazza del Popolo, a charming square often ignored by tourists – which makes it a wonderful spot for resting after a shopping spree. Crossed by the three major roads of Babuino, Ripetta, and Corso, the square is usually abuzz with locals completing their daily errands, shoppers stopping for refreshment at one of the bars or cafés, and expats passing through on their way to the English-language movie theater just off the square.
Outside of Rome, Sperlonga is a gorgeous little town with several great shopping areas and includes Torre Truglia, a scenic area built into a rock that divides the town in two and that features many restaurants, shops, cinemas, bars, and bustling piazzas.
But if you’re looking for the best Rome shopping, you really don’t have to go much further than a few steps to find what you’re looking for.
