Walking around the main city of Italy, filled with attractions, can be considerably tiring. Moreover, the best rest, as you know, is a change of activity. Italy, except for monuments of architecture and art of world significance, is famous for shopping! So, what you need to know about shopping in Rome? Especially, if you are a true shopaholic?
In the capital of Italy, you can find almost all luxury Italian brands, well known in the world, furs and leather things. In addition, Rome presents a large number of budget, but stylish Italian brands, which anyone can afford, even with an average income.
In Rome, as in all Europe, seasonal sales (January-February, July-August) in all stores, boutiques and outlet shops, when discounts on things make up 30-70%, are held twice a year. The size of discounts always depends on the popularity of the brand and the location of the store. Expensive boutiques often do not even announce sales and do not hang up “Sconti” posters in the windows, since the goods with discounts at once disperse to regular customers.
