One of the most gorgeous square in Rome. An ideal place for shopping is Piazza di Spagna. It owes its name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain among the Holy See. Nearby is the famous Column dedicated to the Immaculate Conception blessed to the Virgin Mary. Every December 8th the Pope comes here to pray.
I often go there because of the variety of boutiques you can find there. From the small and traditional one, such as Sermoneta for gloves to the big boutique of Valentino, inaugurated few years ago with an amazing fashion show. It is also possible to get a tea and fantastic cakes in Babington’s, one of the last authentic tea rooms in the Eternal city.
In piazza di Spagna you find also Moncler, Longchamp, Furla and Nespresso if you need your coffee capsules. Even the pharmacy is nice. In front of the Barcaccia fountain you can find Dior on the corner with via Condotti.
