VIA COLA DI RIENZO
Cola di Rienzo, the commercial heart of the Prati neighborhood just north of the Vatican, is a popular shopping destination for Romans. Its sidewalks are quite large, so many people and families take a stroll on via Cola di Rienzo, especially on weekends. There are many small and some spacious shops selling current fashions, bags, shoes etc. Cola di Rienzo offers good quality clothes and accessories for reasonable (though not cheap) prices.
Perhaps the most famous shopping district in Rome is the area surrounding Piazza Spagna, at the base of the Spanish Steps. Tourists flock here to see the flagship stores of Italian designer lines like Prada, Gucci, Etro, Dolce e Gabbana, Miu Miu, Bottega Veneta, Missoni, Versace, Tod's . . . the list seems almost endless. You'll also find Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Wolford, Sephora, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany and other luxury global brands.
