Rome holiday shopping on via del Corso, Rome city break and free Rome travel guide. Rome shopping experience
No Rome holiday would be complete without visiting the bustling pedestrianised Via del Corso, with block after block of shops, cafes and bars. It was once part of the ancient Via Flaminia, which still exists just outside the old city walls. It is now packed with popular retailers such as Mango, H & M, Zara, Stefanel, the music store  Ricordi, as well as countless shoe stores and more. It is also near to many of Rome’s great attractions such as the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon.

Via del Corso takes its name from the horse races (“courses”) that used to be staged here as part of Roman carnival celebrations. It dates back to 220 B.C. when Gauis Flaminius, an influential Consul of Rome, began constructing Via Flaminia to connect the centre of Rome to the Adriatic coast. The best of the shopping is between Piazza Venezia to Piazza del Popolo and is very popular with locals and tourists on a Rome holiday.

The many side streets that branch out from Via del Corso are lined with romantic restaurants and more great shops. This may very well be the heart of any Rome shopping experience and is also where you will find the flagship Ferrari store, don”t think a real one will fit in your suitcase!
