Via Cola di Rienzo Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
Via Cola di Rienzo is a long, straight avenue connecting one corner of Vatican City with the Tiber River at the Regina Margherita Bridge. The street was built and named after 14th-century politician Cola di Rienzo in the late 19th century, just after Italy was unified, and was one of the main streets in the Prati neighborhood. Today, it is primarily a shopping destination, with clothing chain stores, department stores, and Italian shoe stores lining the street. While best known for its retail, you'll also find casual restaurants, hotels, and gourmet food items.
Brands along Via Cola di Rienzo include Guess Jeans, The Body Shop, and Benetton, as well as popular European brands, such as Max Mara, Zara, Liu Jo, Stefanel, Sisley, Falconieri, and the Coin department store. Some shopping tours include stops on the Via Cola di Rienzo, and it’s also easy to browse on your own before or after a visit to the Vatican.
The irregularly-shaped Piazza del Risorgimento anchors one end of the Via Cola di Rienzo right next to the Vatican. It’s a transportation hub, with a tram stop right in the piazza and several bus stops nearby serving St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican Museums. The nearest metro stations are Ottaviano and Lepanto, and the nearest bus stop is the Risorgimento-San Pietro: 11 bus lines stop along this street.
