Via Cola di Rienzo

The avenue has several options to buy luxury and department clothes. The Mercato Rionale is also on the street and is composed of several tents that sell fruit, vegetables, pasta and other typical things from Italian gastronomy.

Despite being an ancient and historic city, Rome also has some shopping mall options that have emerged during the last decade. 

EuRoma 2 is a large mall located outside downtown, where you can find shops such as Pandora, Michael Kors, and other world-renowned brands. Another option is the modern Porta de Roma shopping mall, with big brands such as Apple and Sephora.

For those who want to save money, Castel Romano, located just 25 kilometers from Rome, can be a great alternative. The place has several shops, including ADIDAS, NIKE and Salvatore, and offer up to 40% discounts.
