Shopping on the Via Condotti in Rome
The Via Condotti is the luxury mile of Rome. Here you will find all the major designer labels in close proximity to each other. It begins directly at one of the most beautiful squares in Rome, the Piazza di Spagna in front of the famous Spanish Steps. Here you can shop for luxury goods seven days a week, because the boutiques are also open on Sundays. Just walk along the 700 meter long street in the center of Rome and admire the latest creations of the great designers.
After only a few meters on Via Condotti you will discover the first famous names. The first are Gucci, Valentino and Prada. Whoever shops here can be sure of a special shopping advice. The physical well-being is also taken care of. Right next to Prada is the Antico Caffé Greco. It is the second oldest coffee house in Italy and a real institution when it comes to coffee. It is not uncommon for you to have to reckon with long queues at the door.
On you go with the local luxury labels. These include of course the French brands Dior, Hermès, Céline and Louis Vuitton, all of which have a flagship store on Via Condotti. There are also boutiques with fine jewelry by Bulgari, Frederico Bucellati and Damiani.
Chanel, Etro and Tiffany & Co. are not directly on the Via Condotti, but on the nearby Via del Babuino.
The stores of Italian luxury labels form the end of the luxury mile. Marvel at the shop windows of Armani, Alberta Ferretti, Ermenegildo Zegna and Trussardi. At the end of the street is the famous Trevi Fountain.
If you have the right wallet in your pocket, you are sure to find one or the other fashionable vacation souvenir in this street.
