There are tons of areas one can go shopping in Rome, but Via del Boschetto, in the trendy Monti region is where I go when I want something more unique. Whereas popular shopping neighborhoods in Rome have shops that are chains, or large department stores, Via del Boschetto is a street lined with chic and individual boutiques.
The trendy shopping street only stretches around 400 meters, but there are many stores lined up on both sides of the street. The clothing shops range from thrift stores to high-end shops, with everything in between. Items are generally pretty pricey, but the quality and style of the clothing are very high, and you could be sure that you will be one of the few with any particular item you purchase.
In addition to clothes shops, there are many jewelry and home goods stores. Just like the clothing is unique, any accessories or houseware items you purchase on Via del Boschetto will be quirky and particular. I personally like to buy gifts at the home stores in this area, since the unique shops always have something cool to offer. I mean, who wouldn’t want an ice cube tray in the shape of a brain?!
Go shopping on this street during the sale periods in Italy (January and July), and be sure to snag a great deal!
