The large fashion houses are concentrated in two streets running in parallel and ending at the Spanish Steps. In Via Condotti you will find Prada, Valentino, Gucci, Armani and MaxMara, and in Via Borgognona, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Gianfranco Ferré, Laura Biagiotti and Gai Mattiolo. Close to the Piazza Navona is Via dei Giubbonari, with “more ordinary” fashion shops. Not far from here is Via del Governo Vecchio with enticing second-hand shops.

Rome is the city of delicatessens, and Volpeti at Via Marmorata 47 in Testaccio is a heavenly experience with such delicacies as Latinipasta from Osimo, delicious Saliccia and seasoned meat products. Speciality of the house: cheese, e.g. Formaggio di Fossa, which is kept in large holes dug into the ground. Two other delicatessen shops are the age-old Franchi and Castroni at Via Cola di Rienzo. The Castroni range is somewhat more international. The daily market at Campo de’ Fiori and the covered Mercato di Testaccio market are well worth a visit.

In addition, there are of course many antique shops, such as in the Via dei Coronai, and jewellers in Via dell’Orso and Via dei Pianellari. At Via San Franceso di Sales 85 you will find Cereria Di Giorgio, where you can buy candles of every kind and in every size. Its biggest customer is the Vatican.

In the long shopping street Via del Corso, from the Piazza Venezia right down to Piazza del Popolo, you will find shops from well-known fashion chains such as Stefanel, Etam, The Group and Benetton, as well as specialist boutiques. You will also find a great many shoe shops, sports shops and music shops here, such as Il Messaggero Musicale. You will also find many shops in Cola di Rienzo, in the Prati neighbourhood.
