Rome has a handful of bookshops stocking exclusively English language titles, in addition to larger Italian stores with small sections dedicated to books in English and other languages. Here is our list of the main bookshops, together with a library, which offer a range of books in English, from antique to brand new.
The Almost Corner Bookshop in Trastevere has a wide selection of fiction works and also carries books on Roman history, art, archaeology, and many other subjects.
Via del Moro 45, tel. 065836942.
Centrally located near the Spanish steps, the Anglo American Bookshop carries exclusively books in English, but upon request can order books in other languages.
Rome's newest independent English-language bookshop stocks North American editions of novels, non-fiction titles, essay collections, and literary journals in English, in addition to hosting cultural events.
Although not a bookshop, the 600 books in this library are exclusively English-language and categories include fiction, biography, history, travel and art. The library has been in existence for 60 years and can be found at St Patrick's Catholic American parish near Via Veneto. For details see website.
