Full of junks, low quality fake designer purse/wallets, cheap clothing and leather goods, some "antiques", I counted 3 flower stalls. Crowded. There's a lady selling used designer ties, 30 euro for an Hermes tie? I was tempted but decided against buying. Things are cheap here, croissant and cappuccino only 1.90 euro versus 4 euro in town.

We ventured off to this flea market for an afternoon of browsing and shopping. It was a crazy day of vendors hawking their wares, promising to give the best prices and deals, etc. We bought some beautiful scarves there which were very nice but similar in cost to many other places we went outside of the flea market. The market... More

As previous reviewers have stated, there is a lot of stuff here that you would see at any Flea Market in the world. However, it is in Rome! There are good deals on leather goods (jackets and purses) and other trinkets that you might want to bring home to your friend. It is crowded and you must bargain. Be prepared... More

This is another view of Rome, as you walk through Trasvatere (one of our favourite parts of Rome). The market on a Sunday is great, get up really early and get there for about 8 or 9, it only goes on until 2 and lots of the better vendors leave about 12. Some amazing stalls in the antique section, we... More

Go for the Sunday flea market. Rows upon rows of treasures to be found. Some old, some new. Lots of great people watching too!

The area is not attractive and the markets are terrible. We couldn't work out if they were for locals or tourists. Full of crap! No Italian produce, just random junk and very cheap tourist products. Do not waste your precious time in Rome going to these markets.

We arrived at 7:30 am as we read on trip advisor to start early to avoid De crowds. Due to travelling with an "Irish Mammy" we were still there at 15:30 as she insisted in looking for more bargains!!!. Advise for travellers is to decide what your definitely not interested in and then do a walk by of these stalls,... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
