VIA DEL CORSO
This street, which stretches almost a mile, starts at the Obelisk of the Piazza del Popolo and ends at the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II. During the 1700's, thanks to the many caffès that lined the Corso, it became a center of intellectual, artistic and political life. In the mid nineteenth century there sprang up a multitude of fashion boutiques, book stores, and newspaper offices that give the Via its present-day character.
