As you walk within the graceful city of Rome, you will undoubtedly notice the 'beautiful people.' It seems that each person has been superbly coiffured, manicured, made up and dressed by a fantastic world famous designer. Rome is truly THE place to shop if you would like to be counted among the 'Beautiful People.'
Paris will always remain the fashion center of the world but the shops between Rome's Piazza di Sapana and Via del Cosro offer elegantly beautiful one of a kind items: jewelry, shoes, leather, handbags or whatever you desire! Window shopping is great, but beware--most shops can be extremely expensive, however; if you compare the quality, you will surely find a great bargain.
So, stroll along the streets, enjoy the world-renowned tourist attractions, and at least 'window shop' for some of the most beautifully crafted, hand developed and handsomely designed items to be found. The Via Condota, near the Spanish steps is an area much favored for shopping. Below, I will try to give you some of my favorites.
