As part of Italy's largest bookshop chain, Feltrinelli International might lack the independent charm and personal service of a shop like the Almost Corner, but it's still a useful addition to Rome's range of foreign-language bookshops.

The English titles include a very good classics section, as well as the usual range of crime and literary fiction. A room at the back contains comics and graphic novels (although be warned if you visit with children: they don't shelve children's comics separately from more 'adult' volumes), and the basement is devoted to a huge range of language-learning materials and dictionaries. As well as books in English, they also stock titles in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian.

Feltrinelli International is near Piazza della Repubblica, a few minutes' walk from Termini Station.
