What to Wear When Exploring the Ancient Ruins of Rome


Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

“Rome! By all means, Rome. I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live.” Audrey Hepburn as Princess Ann in Roman Holiday said it best—Rome is arguably one of the most awe-inspiring cities, rich in monuments that’ve miraculously remained intact for centuries. From arches and baths to catacombs and basilicas, no trip to the cosmopolitan Italian capital is compete without losing yourself in its many, many ruins. (The cuisine’s not bad, either.)

Naturally, Rome’s ancient past makes for cinematic glory, with classics like Spartacus, Roma, Gladiator, Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, The Last Days of Pompeii, and countless others filmed there. What’s more, Rome has birthed icons like Isabella Rossellini, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Sophia Loren, while its charm has attracted numerous creatives (John Keats and Percy Bysse Shelley both loved the city so much, they were buried there). Meanwhile, modern-day celebrities like Willem Dafoe call Rome home. Below, shop CR’s top 10 items to wear while marveling at the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Vatican, and other not-to-be-missed landmarks in the Eternal City.
