Breathtaking fountains Duke Riley Womens Jersey , gloomy Coliseum, the magnificent Saint Peter's Basilica, ruins of the Roman Forum... Oh, no, this is not the complete list of things worth seeing in the Eternal city! However, having spent some time enjoying the historic attractions of Rome Austin Hooper Womens Jersey , you are finally tired of it. This is when you want to go back down to earth and do something typical, like shopping.

Well, don't be ashamed of your 锟絜arthly锟?desires. Mind that Italy is one of the best European countries to shop in, so it is really hard to stand the temptation.

So, you are in Rome. First thing to do is to go straight to Via Condotti and the streets next to the Piazza di Spagna. There are famous designer boutiques (Armani, Gucci Deion Jones Womens Jersey , Bulgari, Cartier) all around. Why not get in, if you can afford it? Then let's have a walk down Via del Corso, which connects Piazza Venezia with Piazza del Popolo and its famous Egyptian obelisk, known as the obelisco Flaminio. Via del Corso is the main shopping street in Rome, from where streets with hundreds of stores radiate. Cheap shops stand side by side with boutiques Keanu Neal Womens Jersey , but even the most expensive of them are not as expensive as one might think. Don't forget that the street gets really crowded in the evening, and there might be traffic jams.

However, if you are not hunting for well-known brands and labels, go to the Termini railway station. Many Italians don't like it as being too 锟絚oarse锟?for historic centre. On the right there is Santa Maria degli Angeli church 锟?one of the world's oldest, on the left - Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore 锟?one of the six biggest basilicas in Rome. The place might seem a bit gloomy, but the prices are lower than those in the city centre.

Some tourists are looking for souvenirs for their relatives Takkarist McKinley Womens Jersey , nearest and dearest. If you are one of those and need to buy lots of things, there is one fantastic place for you. Every Sunday lots of Romans head to Porto Portese street market, which is really easy to find: its is located at the Piramide station, crowds of people go there so you won't miss it. Porto Portese is a true heaven for those who like 锟絣eisurely锟?shopping and bargaining. Things that will cost you a fortune in the city centre will definitely be cheap at the market. Though you are never safe from counterfeits. Other advantage of Porto Portese is that it gives you a chance to communicate with locals. Besides, its really 锟絛emocratic锟?- everything can be touched or tried on. Plus to this, there are lots of snack bars selling pizzas Alex Mack Womens Jersey , fish and hot dogs. But beware of pickpockets! Still, one could say that Porto Portese is the largest 锟絛epartment store锟?in Rome.

But all in all, there are relatively few department stores in Rome. As a rule, when you are looking for an English-speaking local, you can't find one. That is why one good advise for you is to prepare for a visit to Rome and learn names of some department stores. One popular chain of stores is La Rinascente, but prices are rather high. Standa and Upim sell things at moderate prices. Also remember such shopping malls as Cinecitt锟?Due Centro Commerciale Vic Beasley Jr. Womens Jersey , which contains about 100 stores, banks bars and restaurants, and the Granai, which is even bigger.

Pay attention to the signs which say 锟絪conti锟?and 锟絪aldi锟? which mean discounts and sales, and especially to the shops with draped windows 锟?this means that the shop is closing and sells its goods at high discounts, which sometimes rise up to 70 and 80 %. As for the question above 锟?well Matt Ryan Womens Jersey , speaking of shops like this, don't believe those who say that there are no queues in Rome: having encountered a shop with big discounts, you might have to queue for hours.

CAIRO, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Eager foreign and local visitors once again were Wednesday gathering around the gold and blue mask of legendary Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo after its restoration.

""It is so exciting to see the mask here ... I came today just to have a close look at this breathtaking piece of art,"" said Kevin Tan, a Chinese tourist who was visiting Egypt for the first time.

Inside a glass showcase under spotlights Devonta Freeman Womens Jersey , the glittering mask attracted hundreds of tourists who came to welcome the priceless back home.

The Egyptian authorities announced that the golden burial mask of King Tut was put back on display Wednesday at the Egyptian Museum after eight weeks of restoration by a team of Egyptian and German professionals.

In January, media reported that the long shinny blue beard of the king was damaged by the museum's cleaning workers and then was glued back onsite hastily and unprofessionally in August 2014.

According to reports, dried glue was visible along the joints between the beard and the mask. This led the Egyptian government to seek the help of professional conservators from Germany to restore the matchless archaeology.

To help accelerate the fixing process, the German ministry of foreign affairs donated 50,000 euros for the restoration process of the mask which started on Oct. 10.

""It is done,"" German conservator Christian Eckmann Calvin Ridley Womens Jersey , who oversaw the restoration work, told reporters Wednesday at a press conference at the Egyptian Museum.

That the mask was back at the museum was happy news for many who came to take photos with the golden piece of art, especially after the museum's administration broke a taboo by allowing the entry of cameras into the museum for one month.

""I'm so lucky because my flight back home will take off tonight. I'm happy I had the chance to see and take photos with fantastic mask,"" Tomoko Shimiza, a Japanese tourist told Xinhua as she posed to take photos next to the mask.

The return of the mask at the museum was not easy for restorers who carried out the repa. Adrian Peterson Jersey   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap NFL Jerseys China   Cheap NFL Jerseys China   Cheap NFL Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys China   Wholesale NFL Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping   Wholesale NHL Jerseys China
