The Eternal City
Shopping in Rome is a leisurely experience and while the prices are generally quite high, the city has something to suit most budgets. Via del Corso and Via del Babuino is where designer stores like Valentino, Fendi, Gucci and Laura Biagiotti can be found. If you want to start off your shopping in Rome on a more reasonable budget, head for the lanes around Trevi Fountain for shoes, the Largo del Tritone for leather goods and Via Nazionale for fashion clothes. The square of the Spanish steps contributes its share of souvenirs for the visitor with items ranging from drawings, done on the spot, to jewellery and much more.
