If you want to indulge in a couple of days of shopping in one of the main capitals of the continent, Rome offers infinite possibilities and is definitely one of the top choices in Europe and beyond, as the birthplace of luxury brands such as Gucci, Valentino and Prada, to mention just a few.
The area of the historic center that offers the greatest concentration of shops and high fashion boutiques is certainly the section below the Spanish Steps, between via del Corso and via del Babuino, and specifically prestigious and exclusive streets such as via dei Condotti, via Borgognona and via Frattina. In fact, it is possible to find here not only the ateliers of the big names, but also small art and antiques shops representative of the Made in Italy.
Most important luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Burberry, Ferragamo and Versace are based here, and these are only a few names in the endless choice found in this quadrilateral, home to the highest luxury shopping.
For those in search of high quality footwear and accessories, Christian Louboutin’s famous red-soled shoes can be purchased in St. Lorenzo in Lucina Square (one of the only two stores in Italy of this brand), while in via dei Condotti can be found Jimmy Choo’s one and only boutique in Rome.
Famous jewelers such as Bulgari, Angeletti and Damiani, with their timeless jewels, have their windows in via dei Condotti, while Tiffany & Co. can be reached walking along via del Babuino.
In via Margutta and via dei Coronari you can come across many galleries of art and antiques, whereas via del Babuino can be ideal for those in search of objects belonging to a more current style.
Spanish Steps and surrounding areas can easily be reached via the metro line A, getting off at Spagna station.
