Bump!

Going to Rome in 2 weeks, want to know what are the best places to go to for cheap thrills... nice markets, vintage, obscure little stores, current sales, local designers?

Thanks for your help!!!

They opened some new shops in VIA URBANA (metro Cavour, the Monti area) and also an American Apparel in VIA DI SERPENTI...

The Porta Portese market unfortunately changed a bit (after razzias etc) but if you've never been there it's woth a visit...

there is a new cool vintage shop in the TRASTEVERE neighbourhood.
It's called Frankenstein shop and it is in Via Santa Dorotea.
Worth a visit!

Rome, at least to me, is more about the smaller shops. I honestly can't even remember a single big shopping center. But I rarely venture outside the more central parts of the city, and when I do it's to wander around Ostia or other non-shopping activities. Hopefully someone else can pitch in with some ideas.

Via del Corso is a great street for shopping in Rome!

Hey guyas, I know it's a shopping thread but I'd like to know if there is a fashion or clothes museum in Rome. Thank you!

I'm going to Rome in just a few days, and I would like to ask, is there a Stradivarius there? I love that store but there's not one in my country . According to their website there's two stores but not in the centre of the city which seems kinda strange to me. Is there not one in the main shopping street? Maybe the website is outdated or sth...? Or maybe that's just wishful thinking :p.

I'm sorry I can't help you more, but if you do decide to hunt down the one in the Euroma2 shopping centre, from what I can see on the map it's close to the EUR which is an interesting area and also has the Museo della Civita Romana. So it's might be a good trip

no i think the site is right. if i remember correctly there's 2 in two huge shopping centers. one is absolutely far from the city (it's hard to consider the place it's at as rome btw ) and the other one is euroma2, as suggested in the post above mine, wich is not in the center but it's in a part of the city that's easy to reach by public transportation (take the metro B till eur fermi or eur palasport and there's lots of buses that take you there)

hope that was helpful
