Via Frattina, Rome

Via Frattina, Rome

Via Frattina is a home to numerous stores such as Geox, Brighenti, MaxMara, Stefanel, Falconeri, Trussardi, Swarovski, Pinko, Comptoir des Cotonniers and Polo Ralph Lauren. If it's value-for-money shoes that you're after, check out Andrea Fabiani for a huge selection of really really low price footwear. Some of their shoes are even Made in Italy! It's a bit chaotic there at times, but can be worth it.

On the opposite side of the street sits one of the great Roman fashion houses, Fausto Santini. They make simply gorgeous bags and shoes of matching quality. The shoes fit like gloves and the bags are comfortable to wear – cleverly made so as to be not just beautiful but also practical.

After a long day of shopping, treat yourself to a glass of wine at Enoteca Regionale Palatium, a contemporary wine bar/restaurant that stocks wine exclusively from the Lazio region and serves a variety of well-prepared entree.

Another great place to stop by on via Frattina is the eponymous Bar Frattina, the only one on this street so far. This small neighborhood bar/café serves very good coffee and, literally, superb(!!!) rich, dark chocolate gelato; their walnut gelato is just as fabulous though. The bar is often full of locals which is a good sign. Remember to get your receipt ("scontrino") first, and then go to the counter to order. Also, avoid sitting outside as they charge extra for whatever you may get there.

Rome Introduction Walking Tour I

Rome Introduction Walking Tour I

Legend has it that Rome was founded in 753 BC by twin brothers Romulus and Remus who were raised by a she-wolf. However, the pair argued about who had the support of the gods, and Romulus ended up killing Remus in a fight on what became Palatine Hill. Thus, Romulus named the city after himself and declared himself as king.

In a slightly less glorious account, Rome actually began as an Iron Age...  view more
