Via del Corso, Rome

3.8
#1 of 223 in Shopping in Rome
Remarkable for its straightness among so many meandering side streets, Via del Corso runs north and south through the historic center of Rome. In the 15th century, the road was a racetrack for riderless horses in the Roman Carnival. Today, tourists and locals frequent the ground-floor shops and cafes. The cafes spill out into the many piazzas that open up off the street, such as Piazza Venezia and Piazza Colonna. The northern part of the street is the more spacious and comfortable for walking. Further south, the sidewalks become narrower. Use our Rome trip builder app to visit Via del Corso on your trip to Rome, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • There's so much to do here. As it's basically the main road running through Rome - it's littered with shops, bars, locals, restaurants, coffee shops. We'd meander down/through here on our way to other...  more »
  • Shops restaurants, pavement street on weekends. Good vibe, good food. Everything is around Via del Corso. Minutes from all important Roma sites.  more »
  • In Rome, in via del Corso is located 502 Gino. The place is very small, order, pay, retreats and eat! White flatbread, focaccia with mortadella or for the greedy, focaccia with nutella. A treat for the palate. We opted for the focaccia with mortadella. Wow great. Hot, crispy, salted to perfection that goes well with mortadella. What can we say? A must try

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
