Best Shopping in Rome

By Chris Boyle

Rome is well known for its sumptuous shopping; there are areas of the city that dazzle with glamorous designer boutiques and palatial flagship stores, while in others the stores are small, quirky and full of character.

For the best international luxury shopping head for the area near the foot of the Spanish Steps, in particular prestigious and exclusive Via dei Condotti and Via Borgognona. Wander to buzzing Via del Governo Vecchio for trendy boutiques and beautiful Via Giulia for art and antiques. When it’s time to take a breath, stop and sample “la dolce vita” with Via Vittorio Veneto’s famous, romantic sprawl of chic cafés and bars. Take a look at our shopping highlights and listings for a flavor of the best.

Femme Sistina

Exclusive fashion at Femme Sistina

One of the most exclusive shopping destinations in the city, Femma Sistina is an innovative two-fold experience.

On one hand, it is a glamorous beauty salon famed for its five decades of decadent treatments and celebrity clientele (Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn and Nicole Kidman are just some of the style icons to have visited the parlor); on the other, it is an elegant fashion boutique stocked with unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, a sensational collection of quirky and beautiful accessories, and a range of exclusive cosmetics and fragrances. Owner Lisette Lenzi is passionate about looking after her clients’ entire personas, through personalized beauty and mini-spa treatments, and finding matching colors, combinations and moods in bespoke pieces that can often be refitted to individual specifications. This is the perfect spot to unwind and be pampered in the middle of a busy shopping trip, have a cocktail and a chat about your style and image, and browse a sumptuous sprawl of unique fashion for the look that is right for you.
