The Roman shopping temple
Since many years the concept of shopping has formed a solid union with that of outlets, oases for all those who love the adventure but wish to limit the costs. One of the most popular of these sites in Rome, and in the overall region of Lazio, is undoubtedly Castel Romano Designer Outlet. It was born in October 2003 and within a couple of decades it has become an essential landmark for shopping lovers from all over the capital and beyond.
The outlet is part of the British outlet family, Outlet Center McArthurGlen, and it is only 25km away from the city of Rome, between Castel Porziano and Pomezia.
With over 150 shops at the heart of a little village betwixt streets and buildings which please the eye with classical Roman architecture, Castel Romano was righlty renamed The Roman Temple of Shopping. Its offers range from high fashion brands, like Moschino, Valentino Versace and Armani to masters of sportswear, such as Asics, Converse, Nike and New Balance, to housing professionals, Nespresso, Bialetti and Thun. There are also shops where you can buy jewellery and watches, such as the flagship stores of Swatch, Swarovsky and Fossil, while for cosmetics or body care you can go to Pupa, L’Occitane e l’Oreal. And it’s not over, Thimberland, Northface, Sundek, Sisley, Replay, Pinko: the choice is plenty! Castel Romano is able to satisfy all who come with truly unbeatable prices (discounts range from 30 to 70% all year round)!
Considering the breadth of choice, visitors are likely to enjoy whole days at Castel Romano and in their store-to-store hops, they also have the chance to sit down and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants on site. A Starbucks’ frappucino, a quick snack at Ham Holy Burger, a fresh and healthy poke at Poke House, or even more traditional lunches, taking the time to relish some pasta at Signorvino or Farinella.
