The best outlet stores in Rome include dedicated complexes where you can spend a day out on a shopping adventure. They feature spacious open-air arcades lined with stores bearing some of Italy’s and the world’s top fashion brands. Even if you aren’t setting out to buy anything, they offer a different window shopping experience compared to the shopping streets downtown.

    There are two grand outlet stores out on the city’s far outskirts. There are also specialty stores within reach from Rome’s city hub – one that bears a top name in the Italian luxury fashion scene and another on the other end of the spectrum, offering second-hand but branded goods. Whatever your preference, here’s where to shop for designer labels in Rome.
