Via del Corso, Rome

3.7
#1 of 167 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. With our custom trip planner, Rome attractions like Via del Corso can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    The Via del Corso is beautiful, with many places for shopping of all kinds, they had recommended us for the variety of quality in what sold well also in prices. But my opinion is that you are missing benches or places of rest that is not a bar, a restaurant where should necessarily be consumed.

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.
