Summer in Rome for Shopping Sprees!

Throughout Italy, starting the second week of July the annual summer sales begin. Large cities like Milan, Florence and Rome, are among the most exciting cities for shoppers who enjoy finely made Italian clothes, shoes and accessories.
In Rome, shopping opportunities are everywhere for all budgets and styles.
For the duration of the summer you can enjoy a wide variety of shopping opportunities at reduced prices, but as the summer goes by you will find less merchandise available. The best month for most variety of merchandise at great prices is July.
Here is where you can shop in Rome during your stay.

Many of the stores are well recognized chains like the Gap, Guess, Zara, Benetton, Disney, Desigual, Foot locker, Nike, Timberland, and more. You will also find cosmetic shops like Sephora and Lush, as well as Kiki for more budget priced Cosmetics.
