There are famous shops with great opportunities. Specially dedicated to who search for luxury and high-quality goods. There are a lot of malls around the city and also in the surroundings. You find famous brands and international products. But one of the peculiarities of Italy is the small shop. It is full of artisans’ workshops disseminated in the city streets, especially in the center.
Via Condotti the place for luxury shopping in Rome
Considering Via Condotti, one of the most famous streets for luxury shopping, it is natural to think about an open-air mall. Shops are located one after another, so you can just walk, watch the windows and enter, then go out and enter again in another store. Instead to be in a modern structure that is similar to many others and most of the time without a personality, you are in the heart of Rome, among the attractions and the historical and prestigious buildings.
In Via Condotti, there are Gucci, Prada, Cartier, and many others, but the popular shops of fashion, shoes, jewelry and other goods are spread also in the other closest streets like Via Delle Carrozze, Via Borgogna, Via Frattina, Via del Corso, Via della Croce, Via dei Due Macelli, Via Margutta, Via del Babuino, Via Vittoria and Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina. Going around in those streets, located a few meters from Spanish Steps you will walk in the small ways typical of Rome, feeling the local atmosphere.
Even do you are not searching for any product in a particular product, the windows will inspire you and you will be updated on the last trends. A tour in the area is quite pleasant also for who is not a shopping lover. You can always have a break in one of the bars located next to the shops. Some of them give a great experience thanks to the combination of quality, location, and service.
Bars and coffee shops
I already wrote in the blog about the historical Caffè Greco, a lovely place full of artworks. The Stravinsky Bar, inside Hotel de Russie, offers the poshest place where to have a drink. It is located between Via del Babuino and Piazza del Popolo. They bring snacks with your glass of wine or a cup of tea. Another perfect space, especially in the warm season, to seat in the luxury neighborhood, is Il Palazzetto wine bar. It is located directly on the main attraction. So you will drink meanwhile people are going up and down on Spanish Steps in front of you.
