When you have had enough of ancient Rome for the day, head to Via del Corso to do some strolling and shopping - or window shopping. There are lots of stores that we have in the U.S., so I didn't find that too exciting. However, there are shops such Kiko Make-up of Milan that we don't have, and that was... More

This is a very pretty Piazza! However, the driving is crazy! No right of way from the streets coming out of the side streets. Italians sure know how to drive.

This is the busiest street where two people can't fit on the sidewalk. Shopping is for high end stores only and the street vendors trying to sell I a selfie phone stick or other junk will annoy you.

This is a PERFECT place for afternoon strolling, people watching, window shopping or simply enjoying some ABSURDLY yummy Gelato. There are also some MAGNIFICENT, small treasured Churches, filled up with Art GALORE, and it s FREE to all, just make sure that you are done with your gelato before going in, sit quietly on BEAUTIFUL, OLD, SENSATIONAL wood hand carved...

We came to this place after we had visited the Vatican. The view was excellent or the surrounding area. It is close to main strip for shopping. You can see the Pantheon and Colosseum from here. It's like a viewing gallery for the city. the view was excellent. Lots to steps to climb, not sure if there was a lift.... More

Great shops along this street, a lot of churches as well. Do be careful of the pick pockets as they are everywhere

Really enjoyed my visit to Via del Corso, its right in the heart of Rome. Its really close to other attractions, but the elevator to the top is a bit pricy a €7 per person, views from the top aren't great either.

This is the main street in central Rome. It runs from the Vittorio Emanuele to the Piazza del Popolo. The street itself is primarily known or it's shopping and when we visited in January the saldis were in full swing. Being the main street it is crowded with people but there are few vehicles that use most of the street.... More

You really need a travel guide to get the best out of this location. The place was filled with groups listening to many languages, and people who dismounted from the Open top red busses were at a distinct disadvantage once they left the bus. It seemed pretty packed when we were there and a lady had her purse stolen by... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
