Off to Rome next week for a long weekend to celebrate my better half's birthday. Any suggestions for wargaming or toy soldier shops worth a visit?

If there are, hopefully they will be near some good ladies accoutrements vendors, otherwise I could be in trouble!

Just chill out man, leave the hobby alone for a while.

Take your lady to a nice café/restaurant and watch the world go by.

I agree with Jim Duncan.

Go stand in the Colosseo. Spend half an hour staring at Trajan's column. You could spend a week in Rome and not need to even think of toy soldiers…..

PS: Excellent Gelati in the Via dell'Angeletto, Monti, 10 minutes north of il Colosseo

..the good thing is that (while half of my soul agrees with those comments.. it is what ended up happening to me the last time we spent a week in Rome.. well more or less..) if you DO find hobby shops you can practicably wager that there will be an appropriate ladies' apparel shop close by..
And if anyone does have any hints… please share :-)

I've been to Rome four times, twice with and twice without my good lady.

I never found a model shop never mind a wargaming shop although I am led to believe there is one in the city centre.

I'll have a google later on to see if I can locate it.

Not in the center but easibly reachable by underground
