You will find Via Cola di Rienzo to the east of the Vatican and west of the Bridge Regina Margherita. It is a long and narrow shopping street, which makes it very convenient considering how the commonly narrow streets of Rome can make navigating the crowds with shopping bags quite a task! Here you will find brand name stores, such as Tiffany’s and Zara, but also restaurants, coffee shops, and gelaterias. This makes it a popular spot for locals and tourists alike! After touring St. Peter’s, it is easy to stroll down to this street and relax for dinner and some evening shopping.
