"Tourist shops & curios" Souvenir Shops Tip by Jenniflower

Souvenir Shops, Rome: 8 reviews and 7 photos

  The Vatican

As with most tourist shops & curios, items on sale are mostly overpriced, and generally not of the best quality.

There is plenty of this in Rome.

On the one corner they will sell a drink for 3 euros, and slightly further away from the attraction, they will sell it for 2 euros... be wary of this.

I do think that because they can easily see you are a tourist, they inflate the prices.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
