Generally, shops in heavily touristed areas range from delightfully kitschy to unrestrainedly tacky. Not so in tiny Colonna, a neighbourhood that manages to maintain its dignified elegance despite its location in the middle of Rome’s sightseeing epicentre. Retail storefronts on Via del Corso attract well-heeled Italians from around the nation and fashion cognoscente from around the world. Colonna's top-tier boutiques ensure that its visitors look strikingly put together while traipsing amongst the neighbourhood's sprawling ruins.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
