The best shopping streets in Rome
Let’s talk about Rome once again to suggest you the best way to spend time in the Eternal City during the BLAST 2017 days (10th to 12th of May) and the following weekend.
We are suggesting you, week by week, the best districts where you can spend your spare time, let’s go shopping today! Next spring, in fact, Rome will be one of the best international hub for digital innovation with BLAST 2017, but the city is one of the best fashion reference points in the world as well. Where can you find the best stores to shop in?
You could start with the streets near Piazza di Spagna and Via del Corso, if you’re looking for the big brands. Via Condotti, Via Borgognona and Via Frattina, for example, are well-known by the expensive shopping lovers. Here you can find stores of Italian stylists as Prada, Gucci, Laura Biagiotti, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana or Alviero Martini. Moreover, the Ancient Greek Cafe (that we have suggested here) is not so far!
Don’t miss Via del Babuino, where you can find Tiffany’s, MIU MIU or Emporio Armani. Are you an art lover? If you are, a visit to via Margutta is a must. It is a small street, very close to Via del Babuino, full of art galleries. It is well known for the “One hundred painters of Via Margutta” association, that turned this street into an open-air art gallery during the spring.
If you’re looking for something more original or you are interested in vintage style, you have to visit the area near Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona, passing by Via del Governo Vecchio. If you are an antique collector don’t miss Via Giulia, one of the principal Roman streets famous for its antique shops, but also known for the fountain called “Fontana del Mascherone” (1626), one of the spots that Roman people love the most.
Near to the Saint Peter district there is Via Cola di Rienzo, another popular shopping street: you can walk among boutiques like Trussardi, Tommy Hilfiger, Benetton or Brandy, but there is also the big department store Coin (next to Tiffany’s).
Moving away from the center of Rome, also the Eur district is full of fashion streets and Viale Europa is the most popular one. Anyway, the big shopping mall Euroma2 (the biggest in Rome) attracts all the attention on itself, with its 230 shops, such as Furla, Luisa Spagnoli or Max &Co. Moreover, the Eur district and Euroma2 are not so far from the Fiera di Roma and BLAST 2017, so it could be a good chance to take your time there!
Don’t miss the chance to combine business opportunities with relaxing time, join BLAST 2017!
