Via del Corso: Shopping and History

Via del Corso is the main artery that cuts through the center of Rome, and one of the Eternal City's main shopping streets. Its central position makes Via del Corso a perfect meeting point for people of all ages. It also attracts avid shoppers, because they can find a broad selection of shops that suit every taste and wallet. A number of Rome's historic attractions are also located along Via del Corso. The history of this famous street's name is also interesting. Few people know that main thoroughfare was the site of an annual jockeyless horse race that spanned the entire length of the street, thus the name: Via del Corso. The races were banned in the mid-19th century, but Via del Corso still offers a colorful parade today.
