Via Roma

2

This is for you Princess. Now you’ve emptied your bank account you can go back home and rest. You deserved it Princess!

Need new Calvin Klein jeans? Your Rolex has passed out? Don’t have a Louis Vuitton yet? You only wear Massimo Dutti shirts? And drink Nespresso coffee (what else?!)? You are on holidays but you are about to collapse without your luxury items?

DON’T WORRY! I know where you can buy all that. In Torino, one place, one street should I say: Via Roma. This street has archways all along so you can do your shopping without being wet if it’s raining. Via Roma is the street with the luxury shops. Okay, you can also find H&M and Zara, which aren’t as chic as the others… But Princess don’t tell me you never go shopping in those ones, I know you’ll be lying.

Piazza San Carlo cuts Via Roma in two parts. In front of the ‘Caffè Torino’ there’s a bull inlaid in the pavement. The tradition wants you to crush his balls to bring luck. Don’t be afraid Princess you still can do it with your brand new stilettos and your faux fur, it’s safe. Then maybe you’ll find THE thigh boots you were looking for ages! Now you’ve emptied your bank account you can go back home and rest. You deserved it Princess!
