For non-shoppers, we do get around. And we must admit to being entranced by "Rosaria's," as the eyeglass store we're touting here is known among friends in Rome.
|The personable - and knowledgeable - Rosaria|
in her shop [and love those glasses].
We were admiring the glasses of a friend, and she told us where she annually gets a new pair, and it turns out, so does everyone else we know. And friends visiting friends stop by Rosaria's shop for new glasses. As Rosaria's slogan says: "Personalita' in vista" - "personality in sight."
|"Something more than an eyeglass store."|
Mondelliani is just off Piazza Colonna, which is next to via del Corso, smack dab in the center. And the shop is open "non-stop" - almost - 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Closed on Monday. Via dei Bergamaschi, 49. tel. 39.06.67.93.481. info@ mondelliani.it. The bi-lingual Web site is fun too.
The sign across the shop window in the Web site photo says "Something more than an eyeglass store." So it is.
