Shopping in Rome.
|Shop till you drop|
Armani, Prada, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and the other grand names in the elegant windows under the baroque or neoclassical facades. But remember that the prices in Rome are rather high.
Treat yourself to some new clothing at Castel Romano Designer Outlet Browse high-fashion stores like Boss, Burberry and Valentino, where items are discounted from 30–70%.
For antiques, head to Via dei Coronari. It's a narrow pedestrianised street near Piazza Navona. The 500-meter long thoroughfare is lined with antique stores and galleries.
The Roman experience is to visit one of the city's many markets. The Sunday morning flea market at Porta Portese is an overcrowded event where you can buy almost anything. It's held on via Portuense south of the Porta Portese gate.
From Monday to Saturday, the morning market is in via Sannio, just outside the Roman walls by San Giovanni in Laterano. Here you can browse huge volumes of cheap clothes.
Shopping In Venice
|Cinderella's Glass Slipper|
Venice has long been a place of trade and remains a busy retail center. Though the big name fashion houses are well-represented, the joy of shopping in Venice lies in hunting down those local novelty items.
However if it's brand name fashions you're after, Venice won't disappoint. The island's busiest shopping strip is the Merceri. It runs all the ways from the Piazza to the Rialto Bridge and almost all the celebrated Italian labels have boutiques here and celebrated prices. Dream on...
For other items, Calle della Mandola is the place to browse books and glass beads. And Campo Santo Stefano is the square for antique hunting.
Carnival is the great event held every February but the masks are manufactured as souvenirs all year-round in Venice's small workshops. You can get everything from full size porcelain masks with a hefty price tag to inexpensive ornaments such as silver earrings in the shape of carnival masks.
The other great specialty of Venice is glassware from the island of Murano. These include such items as vases, clocks and wine bottle caps. And you can also get decorative items such as rings, bracelets or pendants made out of the delightful colored glass.
Try on Cinderella's glass slipper. Visit Murano by private taxi boat, with glassblowing demonstration and a chance to try on Cinderella's glass slipper. Meander the streets of Murano — including its historical center — en route to the glassblowing factory. Watch artisans create two magnificent glass objects while engaging in the island's most iconic craft.
These can be very inexpensive and make great souvenirs of Venice. Other delights special to Venice include porcelain dolls and Burano lace work.
