  • This is a fantastic list! I’m surprised there are so many shops I haven’t heard of yet – I’m looking forward to checking them all out soon.

    AGU is definitely a favourite – it’s one street over from my apartment, and I can’t help but linger in front of their window every time I pass by.

    Have you heard of UNO boutique in Piazza Mattei? It’s got a gorgeous assortment of beautiful, quality basics from various Italian and French designers, and the salesgirls are super helpful.

  • Hi, Wanted to know the name/ contact of the interior designer for the TWIN SET by Simona Barbieri in Roma

  • So happy that one of the resellers of the Mighty Purse made the list!!! Shop at Pandemonium for the most “tech chic” accessory in Italy. If you have a smartphone with a dumb battery that doesn’t last to mezzogiorno you need the Mighty Purse. It is a cute bag that carries your essentials AND can charge your smartphone on the go. Mighty Purse works with all usb smartphones, tablets and iPhones. Check out the fashion colors and selection at Pandemonium. #mightypurseinitalia
