“Great Selection of English Books”

Anglo American Book
Ranked #135 of 451 Shopping in Rome
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 January 2017

I originally came to buy textbooks for my school, but returned multiple times to peruse the shelves. The store has a wide selection of English books, everything from historial nonfiction to the classics. The environment is comfy and the staff never rushes you, but is very helpful if any need arises. Ask for the student discount at checkout if you have a valid ID with you.

During most of our trip to Italy, we had in vain been searching for a book in the Percy Jackson series for our son, who had been wanting it since a few days into our trip. There was no hope of finding it in Sicily and I had hoped to get to another major bookstore in Rome but had not had a chance yet. While visiting the Spanish Steps on our last day, my son was getting really anxious to find the book and we located the store on a map. When we got there, though, the door was half closed and there was a sign saying it was closed for inventory purposes for the next two days. We bent down to peek under the door and saw the staff, who pointed to the sign. We were standing there for a few minutes, disappointed, when Christina came to the door and asked what we were looking for. We gave her the title and within a few minutes she was back with the precious book in her hand, in English! So happy to be able to get it and extremely grateful to her for her kindness. My son clutched the book to his chest the whole way back to Piazza Navona! (These are the first books he has really liked). If they were open I am sure we would have found a lot of great titles, but just wanted to express our gratitude. Highly recommend!

Loads of English titles and well organised shelves. Easy to find what you where looking for and nice staff. Best bookshop in Rome.

Very good English-language bookstore near the Spanish Steps - particularly nice selection of art books. Also, an excellent place to go for English-language books about Rome.

Our family of readers found this bookstore and shopped twice while on our visit to Rome. We found the people to be extremely friendly and the selection huge! We highly recommend this gem of a bookstore in the Spanish Steps/Via Condotti section of Rome.
