Clothing Shops and Outlets
Shops on the Mercati di Traiano areaNote: walking around the Mercati di Traiano (open air Museum) you get the feeling of how Imperial Rome looked with its shops.
Shopping is also a feeling and to go shopping in Via del Corso in Rome is getting the feeling of doing something like a Roman; the walking, the observing, the buying, the talking, the meeting with friends…
In the last few years more young people meet in this area, above all on Saturday afternoon, the perfect day for youngsters to meet and hang around. But from the beginning of Via del Corso as far as the end there are many stores and boutiques, especially for women, the atmosphere is trendy and really worth it to live. Moreover, there are also beautiful palaces and buildings to see while walking along.
The streets crossing Via del Corso are also full of shops, like via delle Carrozze, via della Croce and via Fratina, which, besides hosting beautiful boutiques, are especially crowded with sports and casual clothing.
Mercato di Via SannioAt this market there is a large variety of vintage items, especially clothing and shoes. Open from morning to lunch time and closed Sundays.
