Vibrant atmosphere, beautiful buildings. Very nice street for shopping and for window shopping as well. The architecture of the buildings is amazing.

“Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Via XX is interesting for it's typical architecture but mostly if you are looking to have a shopping day. It is where you will find the main designers (forget couture, think pret à porter or under).
At one end of the street (fountain), there is the theatre and a cute Galleria where you can find antics book fairs, shops and quaint little restaurants.

“Just an average street!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

This is a busy commercial street. I don't know why someone would consider it an attraction.

“A Once-Grand Boulevard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2009

We have walked this street many times. Many large and small stores under a grand arcade. It was undoubtedly the place to see and be seen many years ago. There are restaurants and cafes where you can sit and watch the people go by. The area is in some state of disrepair as it must cost millions to upgrade the tile and marble work.

“Just an average street!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2005

This is just an average street with some shops on it! Hardly what I would call an "attraction".
