Shoe "Shop"

Posted on Aug 9, 2010 | 3 comments

I’m back in Rome and after just a week gone, it’s already emptying out like a ghost town. But that’s ok, I like it that way. Being at the station I took the opportunity to photograph something that’s always made me chuckle. The shoe “shops” which are just booths randomly dispersed around town (there was one by my bus stop in Montesacro as well). They seem to have quite the stock set up, so if you need some cheap, €15 shoes, this is your place!

On a side note, if anyone is interested, I was asked to give my 5 favorite Italian films over on Films in Focus. They asked 4 other bloggers as well, so keep tuned in there to add to your Italian movie list.


  1. That's a lot of shoes to set up every day

  2. Wow, cool write-up on the film website. You're really accomplished…I had thought of you more as "just" a blogger. I'm impressed! Next time I'm in Rome maybe we can cross paths. And I'm going to add your films to my "Netflix" list right now.

  3. when i saw this pic i was wondering if it was anywhere near the bus station we used when i was in rome in june……then i saw the gold jesus!!!! (i think it's jesus??)anyway, our hostel was on that street….the "gold jesus" was what we looked for to find our way "home"..loved visiting italy!!
