    The Simplest of Tastes: Shopping for the Best of Rome

The Simplest of Tastes: Shopping for the Best of Rome

  • City: Rome
  • Duration: Approximately 3 hours

Explore the best of Rome shopping! Your personal assistant will pick you up at your hotel and take you on a treasure hunt through the city?s premier shopping districts.

Overview

There's nothing quite like sightseeing in the Eternal City. The ruins, the churches, the fountains and... the shopping! Anyone who has ever been to the city before knows that a Roman shopping excursion is actually like sightseeing. The only difference is that you can take home the treasures you find, and in Rome you can find just about anything. Oscar Wilde famously declared "I have the simplest of tastes. I am always satisfied with the best" and we think he'd be quite at home among the city's sensational shops.

Past historical monuments, down twisted narrow alleys and through charming piazzas, your personal assistant will lead the way to the best local designer clothing boutiques, jewelry shops, art & antique galleries, fine furniture showrooms, artisanal workshops and open-air markets. Simply let us know what you are shopping for and we will design a tour based on your interests.

Your personal assistant will pick you up at your hotel and take you through the maze of streets that make up Rome's shopping districts. Indulge yourself, maximize your time and let your assistant source out the places where you'll find only the very best to satisfy your simple tastes.

In addition to conducting general shopping tours, our assistants particularly relishes the challenges presented by very specialized requests. Their business is to track down and establish relationships with independent dealers and artisans specializing in such things as:

  • Designer clothing
  • Custom made-to-order clothing & shoes
  • Antique & contemporary jewelry
  • Handmade crocodile or leather bags
  • Handmade papers & stationery
  • Historic reproduction fabrics & trim
  • Hand-painted furniture & ceramics
  • Silverware
  • Religious articles
But this is just a sampling. Take advantage of our shopping assistants insider knowledge, because it's their mission to help you find what you want. They will act as your personal translators to help you negotiate the best prices available [although you are under no obligation to purchase anything]. So, whether you've been searching for custom-made crocodile shoes, damask silk fabric based on Renaissance motifs, or just want some stylish new duds, let them help you find it.
