Among all the Roman shopping sites it is not to be missed the area of the Trident with the famous Via Condotti, Via Burgundian, via Frattina and the whole area adjacent to Piazza di Spagna, dotted with famous jewelers and the workshops of the most important designers, both Italians and internationals.
Although Rome is sometimes not considered as fashion as Milan, Valentino has shown his collection of haute couture its 45th anniversary in 2005 and Fendi opened its flagship shop on seven floors in the neoclassical Palazzo Fendi. All the streets around Via dei Condotti and the Spanish Steps are therefore devoted to high fashion, all the big names have their headquarters there, and even if you cannot afford to shop is still interesting to walk around looking to see the boutiques.
If you want to save money, Galleria del Corso host various shops which can satisfy the different needs, and Giubbonari, near Campo de Fiori, offers economical alternatives to shops in Piazza di Spagna.
The shopping continues in the area of Prati / San Pietro (Via Cola di Rienzo, Via Ottaviano) and in the San Giovanni (via Appia Nuova), where the supply goes from small businesses to large international chains.
If you are looking for something unusual, we suggest the splendid Via del Governo Vecchio, a central and unconventional street but a stone's throw from Piazza Navona. Here you can find clothing stores, often artisan, offering innovative and original lines, but also hard to find vintage clothing shops.
Remaining in the center, we invite you to explore via del Pellegrino and the area around Campo de Fiori, where you will find eclectic boutique.
If you move instead to the Monti area, do not miss the small shops of antiques and modern goldsmiths and artists, and shops selling really unique clothing.
Finally in the neighborhood of San Lorenzo you will find works of art and crafts of special design, often handmade, and shops displaying small works of art.
