  Valentino store near Spanish Steps, Rome
by karenincalifornia

Many of the major designers have shops near the Spanish Steps. Walking through those streets was like paging through Vogue.

What to buy: You can buy very expensive clothes and bags here at these designer shops. For those of you who have to have your custom made shirts, this is the place to come.

Or you could go over to Ponte S. Angelo (the bridge by the Castel S Angelo) and buy a knock-off for 1/20th of the price. (The shirt probably won't fit.)

What to pay: Depends if you have to have the real thing.

Address: In Spanish Steps neighborhood
