Arte Italiana Review
Religious souvenir shops line the avenue leading to St. Peter's Basilica and at this one, whether you're looking for a unique First Holy Communion gift, rosary bracelets, or Byzantine icons, you will find something meaningful to bestow on your parish back home. The multilingual staff will help you find what you are looking for and mean to be helpful, even if they can seem pushy. The store stocks a wide variety of detailed crèche statuettes, alabaster sculptures, tapestries, saints medals, and crucifixes handmade in Italy. The pieces aren't cheap, but they are of the highest quality and make great mementos to personalize your Vatican experience.
