Shopping in Rome depends where you do it. Garments in Via del Corso cost more than those in malls or stalls. As for stalls don’t hesitate buying a jeans for 10 euro or less it is a good buy.

For example, the lovely Jewish Ghetto located near the Capitol Hill, Pigneto and Vittorio Emanuele quarters inhabited by many migrants or Trastevere still dominated by Romans.
Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini are best Made in Italy brands. Of course Rome is not home to any car company but showrooms to many more cars are available.
Hotels or Hostels are all year round available in Rome but it is advisable to book some weeks before one gets here, the longer the booking date the lesser cost.
