Campo Marzio Shopping and Antiques Hunting, Rome

Campo Marzio Shopping and Antiques Hunting (Self Guided), Rome

Turn back the clock about 2,000 years and Campo Marzio was just outside ancient Rome, a neutral ground where ambassadors were received. Today, it is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, home to a clutch of ancient monuments and some fantastic shopping. The neighborhood is a magnet for fashionistas and the well-heeled and is known as Rome's 21st-century dolce vita. This translates as "sweet life".

Indulge in some expensive retail therapy at Via Condotti, a road named after the channels that used to carry water to the ancient Roman Baths of Agrippa. This is considered by many to be the poshest shopping street in Rome. Here you will find the likes of Prada, Gucci and Bulgari as well as jewelers, specialty stores, antique dealers and art galleries. When you walk down the pedestrian-only Via Borgognona, you will notice lots of wealthy, elegantly dressed people from all over the world. The stores here are a cut above the rest and include numerous fashion houses, such as Dolce & Gabanna, Fendi and Laura Biagiotti. Connecting Piazza del Popolo with the Spanish Steps is Via del Babuino, a chic and stylish street of luxury shops. Antique hunters head for the stores on Via Margutta, a street made famous by the Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday.
