Winter Sales 2017 in Rome: when do they start? Shopping tips
When do the Winter 2017 sales start in Rome? This is the question that all
lovers of shopping and Rome are asking in view of the end of Christmas and the
arrival of the traditional winter sales in the capital.
Many tourists, as well as Rome's citizens, are eagerly awaiting the Winter 2017 sales, but few already know when they start.
Going shopping at the beginning of the sales, both in winter and summer, is the best time to find the best deals, the most beautiful discounted pieces and a wide choice of available sizes.
Furthermore, many guests also choose the Hotel Mozart so that they can shop until they drop, taking advantage of the winter sales thanks to the proximity of our hotel to the most famous shopping streets in the Eternal City, Via del Corso and Via Condotti, lined with designer shops and international clothing chains.

Let's look at when the winter sales start in January 2017 and at some tips for ensuring your best shopping trip ever.
When do the Winter 2017 sales start in Rome?
Every year, including 2016, the winter sales in Rome and throughout Italy start in January. The start date used to vary from region to region, but from this year the sales will start simultaneously across Italy.
In Rome, and everywhere else in Italy, the 2016-2017 winter sales will start on Thursday, 5 January 2017, the day before Epiphany.
However, there will be many sales and discounts offered in shops before the start of the official sales scheduled for 5 January 2017. For this reason we recommend that you visit your favourite shops before the start of the sales, so that you don't miss out on buying the most beautiful things at discounted prices, which are usually snapped up on the first day of the sales.
Winter sales 2017: useful tips
As you can imagine, the shops are extremely crowded during the winter sales. Both the Romans and many tourists shop in the sales to buy what they want at a discounted price.
For this reason, shopping during the sales can be fairly stressful. But there are a few little "tricks" that the Hotel Mozart recommends for its guests to enjoy the Winter 2017 sales as much as possible and to help them find the best prices.
- Find out what time your favourite shops opens and get there a few minutes beforehand on the day the Winter 2017 sales start . In this way there will be less people in the shop, the shelves of bags, clothes and other items will still be in order and the assistants will be more willing to help you.
- Go to the shops a few days before the sales start. If you're lucky, you'll already find that what you like is on offer at a discounted price . Otherwise you can try things on and see what you like best, so that when you go during the sales you just have to pay for it. This way, you avoid the inevitably long queues for the fitting rooms.
- Look carefully at the discounted items. Some shops put clothes from previous collections in the sales.
- Check your receipt. Sometimes the discount indicated on the label of the garment you have chosen is not the same as that indicated on the receipt.
