Fantastic book. I wish this author was still alive -- her contribution to this topic has been outstanding. I have this version and the 2003. It's 2017 and much of the book - and certainly the shopping advice - it quite relevant. My favorite travel advice.

This is the second guide I purchase from Suzy Gershman: Born to Shop.
The first one I bought I liked more than this one.
However, the guide still provides information that enables you to know the locations of these stores and places to shop
while you are visiting Italy. I never throw these guides away.
Some of the stores on both guides I own still serve the public, so it is wise to keep them.

I found much of the ROME content of this book already outdated.
With the economy and rising Euro, I urge Suzy to look for more affordable stores... and more "cheap and cheerful" items to take home. For example, I enjoyed my visit to the UPIM. It's a great place for affordable costume jewelry, Italian soaps and cosmetics. I also liked the clothes... and the price... plus there's a nice UPIM at the train station. I also found a fun store called "LA LA" which sells cool jewelry for between 10-20 Euros. The Vatican post office is a treasure box for quality religious items. Affordable, Vatican sanctioned and Pope blessed.. Who could ask for more? Lastly, don't overlook the street vendors and newsstands. They're a great source for scarfs, calenders and cheap murano glass necklaces. By the way, I love Suzy... It's just cheaper now to buy your Prada and Tods at Neiman Marcus here in the states... Don't go to Rome thinking you're going to fill your closets.

This is a gem--organized geographically, with great maps, restaurant and hotel tips as well as suggestions on where to shop, what to buy (and what to look at and buy later for lots less money). I wish there were just a few sight-seeing tips--the one or two things you should see in between shopping expeditions--if there were, you wouldn't need any other guide books for your trip to Italy.
Wat!? Wat!?
I am sitting in the airport waiting for my second plane, returning from Rome. Second trip to Rome, fourth to Italy, and the first time I have used "Born to Shop Italy". In a nutshell - this book may have cost me more time than it saved me. Why? Some of the information is way out of date. For example, I have the 2010 edition, which recommends a store called "Rance" on Piazza Navona (53). Well, Rance (a bath/beauty store) is nowhere to be found. The store at 53 is a toy store, and the proprietors told me that Rance closed two years ago. If that's true, the store was closed before the book I bought went to print.

There were other stores I could not find at the addresses given (Merola, Penny Lane, Amina Rubinacci). Still others that were highly recommended (Lisa Corti, Indoroman) offer merchandise that did not appeal to me because it was not very Italian. To each her own, especially in matters of taste, but I was very disappointed in the stores that got rave reviews. One store, Dominique Garden, is described as carrying "designer inspired" shoes that may "fool your friends" ("suede Tod's wannabes for 42 euros"). NOT. Did I happen to hit the store in an off moment? Judging by the quality of their offerings, I don't think so. I was completely underwhelmed.

I appreciate quality and style, but I am not going to drop anywhere close to 2K on a handbag. I agree with other reviewers that this book is written for the less that 5% of shoppers (if there are that many) who will be dropping their dollars at Gucci and the like. The thing is - who needs a shopping guide to find Gucci, Fendi, Tod's etc.? They are easy to find.

The silver lining for me was Francesco Rogani - beautifully made bags in wonderful colors, at a price that is palatable. Would I have found Francesco Rogani on Via Condotti anyway? Probably, but Gershman's book was on the mark about that store.

When I shop abroad I am looking for the cute boutiques or small chains that are not big "names" - the ones the locals go to, the ones that have not hit the big time yet, the ones that offer items that I will not see in the USA. Gershman's specific store recommendations were a bust for me on that score. BUT, she does give accurate shopping district information that was helpful. If you purchase the book, use it for the neighborhood shopping information it offers.

Most of the guidebooks for countries include portions on shopping but they don't tell you what TO buy and what NOT to buy, as well as Where to buy it--SUZY DOES! She has shopped Italy backwards and forwards and knows the ins and outs and nooks and crannies. Having never been to Italy, I was unsure of the special things to buy while I was there. If you are going to Italy and want to know how to best spend your $ on souveniers, get this book. Tips like avoiding Piazza San Marco if you don't want to pay the highest prices for Venetian goodies are invaluable. Also,if you want to be a bit more spendy she gives you those highlights as well--Venezia Stadium is one of the most gorgeous stores in the shopping universe. She includes tips on stores both in the major cities and the rural countryside--including designer outlets. If you are interested in hotels and food she includes those as well, although her hotel budget is a little higher than the average person.
Most of all Suzy is hilarious! Buy this book if you plan to shop at all while visiting Italy.
