Itinerary description

Intro:
This itinerary is for the shopaholic in you! From Termini Train Station to Via della Conciliazione, from inexpensive to the most luxurious shops, everything you need for a good day of shopping.
Transport:
It is highly recommended you walk from one place to another since all the locations are in the city center.
Time Required:
It takes about  8 hours to visit all the places mentioned, depending on the amount of time you decide to stop in each shop.
Route:
Our shopping  itinerary stars from Termini Train Station for two reasons: the first is that it is easy to get to, and second because  under the station there are many stores whose prices are quite reasonable like Nike, Sephora, Levis, Tim (a phone company) etc..  Leaving Termini and walking towards Repubblica’ s Square (the big mountain),  continue along Via Nazionale, a busy street in Rome for shopping . Here you can find both cheap and more expensive shops such as Intimissimi, Calzedonia, Stefanel, Elena Mirò, David Saddler, Bata, Stonefly and much more. At the end of this rather long street you’ll arrive in Venice Square.  The main street leading from the square is Via del Corso, another popular and very long street for shopping. Stroll down Via del Corso among the many shops until you arrive at Colonna’s Gallery. This is a little less than half way down and is a good place to take a break at one of the cafes in the gallery.  Also inside the gallery you will find wonderful shops like Zara, Calvin Klein, La Rinascente and many others. Once you exit the gallery, continue down Via del Corso to carry on window shopping and enjoying this typical Roman pastime.  You’ll find many shops like Intimissimi, Calzedonia, Guess, Energie, Zara, H&M and many exquisite shoe stores.  Soon after, you’ll reach the intersection with Via dei Condotti, home to the most famous and high fashion shops in Rome. You'll find Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Ermanno Scervino, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Bulgari and many other big names. Back on Via del Corso, you’ll arrive in the People’s Square. From the square, walk up the little ramp to the left and cross the Tiber to get to Via Cola di Rienzo and to continue your shopping if you can!  If not, you can call it a day  at the People’s Square and take the subway at stop “Flaminio” (Line A).  Remember: stores and shops generally close between 7:30pm and 8pm.
