    What to buy: A good range of educational and just fun toys. Mainly knights and castles. Few girls toys.

    Salsamenteri: Wine and dine with Pasta

    by magyarozag Written Dec 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its a small rough shop, furnished with dark wooden cases and always cost cut alcohol. It is Salsamenteri and is beautiful. Above the doors it says Enoteca Vino

    What to buy: They sell lots of different varieties of wine and lots of differnet shaped pastas. Some are more for novelty like the Italian flag and other more rude shaped pastas. Still, it is a lovely shop and a great place to get a present for some one back in your own country or someone you are meeting in Rome or just buy it for yourself.

    What to pay: The prices are resonable, around 3 or 4 Euros for a big bag of novelty pasta or around 4 to 5 Euros for Wine, cheaper if it is displayed outside.

    Shopping near the train station

    by kgbheat Updated Oct 25, 2006

    Shopping near the train station has reasonably cheaply priced items i.e. hand made leather belts and purses. There is also many clothing shops. Don't go at night and walk around. I got very nervous when I did it. lots of seedy characters.

    What to pay: You can definetly hagle over prices

    by icunme Written Sep 11, 2006

    Marco says that he maintains a laboratory for the reproduction of archeological artifacts. They are quite good - many excellent marble/alabaster statues, both large and small. Lots of Gladiator artifacts that look as if they could be or could have been cinema props. Excellent array of reproduced ancient jewelry. Very entertaining!

    What to buy: Reproductions of Roman artifacts - Jewelry especially

    What to pay: Negotiate with Marco Bocchio - always ask for the tax to be deducted over 155 €

    Marble bust - excellent Gladiator reproductions

    Shopping Mall - Rome style: Galleria Alberto Sordi

    by icunme Updated Sep 4, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find almost everything here - clothing, stationery, Lundt chocolate shop, music, books -- and on a sweltering Rome day, the air conditioning alone beckons to you if you are anywhere near the entrance. The Galleria Alberto Sordi was built in 1914 on the former Palazzo Piombino and is named after the famous Italian actor who died during the year before it re-opened, honoring his name. The arcade facility is located right in front of the column of emperor Marcus Aurelius. The arcade had always been one of the city's strategic meeting places. Obscure actors were know to gather here during the first half of the 20th century in hopes of securing an engagement. For 20 years arcade had gradually fallen into decay and became an abandoned place where the homeless spent the night. Its revival and reopening in 2003 permitted two generations of roman people to step into the former Galleria Colonna for the first time in their life.

    For those who are familiar with Milano, you might say it is reminiscent of the Milano Galleria - only on a much smaller scale - perhaps it is the glass ceiling.

    The lovely stained glass ceiling is complimented by a centrally located bar and cafe where you can leisurely await the final hour(s) of your companion's shopping sprees.

    What to buy: Almost anything - always check tags for "Made in Italy" as there is so much now that is "made in China"

    What to pay: From average prices to slightly more expensive than the off-Corso shops.

    Opening hours

    by chelley Written Jul 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shops in Rome tend to close on a Saturday lunchtime and don't open again until Monday morning.
    Don't plan a weekend shopping trip to Rome - you might be disappointed. Better to shop in the week.

    What to buy: Rome is great for sandals at the moment. Lots of stalls across the city sell a good selection of sandals for 13 euro per pair.

    Galleria Alberto Sordi: Whatever happened to Galleria Colonna ?

    by Paisleypaul Written Jun 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whatever happened to Galleria Colonna ? Well at the end of 2003 it reopened as Galleria Alberto Sordi. It was renovated for many years ; 'famoso attore' Sordi - who I think had voiced Oliver Hardy in Italian - died about a year previously I believe, hence it was renamed after him. His 1973 movie Stardust began - and had its finale - at the Galleria

    What to buy: Everything form book and DVD shops, 2 open plan cafe bars, clothes - everyrthing you would expect. And regularly cleaned WCs !

    Open picture and zoom LHS to see what's here.

    What to pay: from less than 1Euro to many 1,000s Euro !

    Galleria Alberto Sordi Exit toward Piazza Colonna - Piazza Navona In direction takes you back to the Trevi

    Market near San Giovanni: Market - open every weekday

    by Paisleypaul Updated Jun 8, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I beleive this market is on every day of the week. *** UPDATE The street name is Via Sannio *** from San Giovanni underground, it's a left turn at the exit and you will see it on your left. It just looked like a long street of stalls to one side - but three quarters of the way along there is a turn off to a covered area and a square of market stalls

    Daily 0830 -1330 Monday - Saturday

    What to buy: I bought 2 bottle openers with kind of ethnic African with doctor heads for EU2 each. There are clothes and fake bags

    What to pay: Gucci and D&G fake bags- we were askled for Eu37 but the y took Eu10 and then offered another at Eu8. Elsewhere a Eu25 bracelet went for Eu7. They nearly all negotiate and be aware you could be looking at a fraction of what has been asked

    The quadrilateral of the center: Roman shopping

    by AlexDJ Written May 23, 2006

    It has become a consolidated custom to come to Rome to go shopping. Most tourists make their purchases in the most famous streets of the center. From Piazza di Spagna, one of the most famous squares in the world for its beautiful staircase (the Spanish Steps), often crowded with tourists and romans as well, you can start the rounds of the streets of the center, ideally enclosed within a quadrilateral between Via del Corso, Via del Babuino, Via della Vite and Piazza del Popolo. Via Condotti, Via Frattina, Via Borgognona and Via Mario de' Fiori are just some of the main streets comprised in this area, where the shops of the most prestigious designers are located.

    VARIOUS: SHOPPING AROUND THE SPANISH STEPS

    by STEFZAMM Updated Apr 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh well if Via Condotti is not for you, then don't take the street opposite the Spanish Steps, instead take a right or a left, there are plenty of shops on both streets which are not as expensive as those on via condotti.

    Facing the Spanish Steps on the left hand side you can take the longest street that takes you to Piazza del Popolo where you are likely to find alot of shops on the way there.

    What to buy: Womens/Mens/Childrens - Cloths/Shoes/Accesories
    You also find food stores, restaurants and cafeterias where you can make your groceries shopping or stop for a quick snack, an ice cream or dinner before or after shopping.

    What to pay: Normal prices, depending on what you buy!

    VARIOUS: SHOPPING AROUND THE TREVI FOUNTAIN

    by STEFZAMM Updated Apr 5, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are various shops around the Trevi Fountain from cloths shops, to souvenir shops, to Restaurants, you name it, its around the Trevi Fountain. Love & Happiness are in the area, around the Trevi fountain, so the special lights and the splashes of water makes everything seems so beautiful and nice, though I honestly think that I really enjoyed shopping in this area. Its a mixture of average shops plus stalls.

    What to buy: From the shops near the Trevi Fountain I bought cloths, food, flowers and souvenirs.

    What to pay: The souvenirs might be cheaper from streets like Via Nazzionale rather than from stalls close to the fountain, otherwise other shops must be at reasonable prices.

  • Ah!! Shoes!!

    by CDNgirl Written Mar 22, 2006

    Italian Shoes are the best!! We had such fun shopping for shoes, of all things, this last visit to Rome!! So much to choose from, such a great price!!

    What to buy: The only downfall to this great shoe-shopping trip was that my cousin, whom I was shopping with, has very narrow feet, so she had some difficulty finding things that would fit properly, that didn't cost a fortune. Fortunately for me, I am a very typical size 8, so my biggest problem was self control!!
