It is everything that other reviewers have said. We visited the market today and have found it to be one of the highlights of our current trip. We went there out of interest, not intending to shop, but in filtering through the "stuff", there were fantastic bargains to be had and we went home with lots of amazing things that... More

Was here recently and saw exactly two tables of "antiques." The rest is cheap clothes, motorcycle helmets, key chains....you get the picture. Nothing but junk and garbage. Stay away (unless you're a pickpocket).

I am so very sorry to strongly do not recommend this experience while in Rome So much to see in this wonderful time that really is a pity to waste a morning here. Noisy, full of cheap things. Nothing is left of the old times. Pay attention to your pockets. It can a times be also unsafe.

This is the place where you can find anything, from clothes to toys, shoes and bags... everything with a very cheap price! The market closes around 13:00 so if you want to find something you have to go early in the morning. Don't forget home your patience!! There is a lot of people !! Be aware of the bag thieves!

I just wanted to take aloof, but it's a waste of time, if you wanna go just pass by early so you could avoid the crowds. Nothing special in there.

Prices are quite reasonable therefore i did not find the need to... More

I thought there was only one flea market in Rome, so I did a Google map search for Flea Market and it took me here. Apparently there is a nice one (Campo de Fiori) but this one was full of garbage. Seriously - it was all second hand clothes (basically the same stuff everywhere) and plastic crap from China. Do... More

At Porta Portese you can buy almost everything, from Made in China-style cheap stuff, scarfs, shoes, clothes (used from 50 cents and up, and new), vintage items, bags, makeup, fake and real jewelry and much more. A lot of stands have the same stuff, and the market is BIG! Make sure to bargain (you don't want to find the same... More

There is a lot of junk here.....BUT if you have the time and the patience you can find some deals, although like another reviewer posted, they are far and few between. I did buy some olive wood utensils along with some very inexpensive sweaters that I bought the last time I was here as they surprising wore very well. The... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
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.
