Typical flea market

Kind of like a flea market anywhere but did purchase a couple of little things, nothing amazing though and prices were normal rather than a bargain. Glad we did it but not sure I... read more

From piazza Porta Portese to Piazza Ipolito Nievo, (about 3km) every sunday fom 7 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. it's the largest and most famous flea market in Rome. Here you can find unimmaginable things at a very cheap price; to go there it's very fun. To discouver Porta Portese is incredible..

I went to Porta Portese for the flea market. I got there by taxi as there is not a Metro station close enough. Also when I left the Taxi, the Taxi driver SPECIFICALLY advised me to be careful of pick pockets and to keep my money in my front pocket. Aside from all this I had a great time! The... More

Had a great time walking around with my wife and teenage daughters. After spending 15 minutes finding the elusive "Popeners" the vendor refused to budge one red Euro on the price. I can't blame him as we spent so much time searching his table. Deals on stuff can be found, but the real value is having an enjoyable, non-tourist experience.... More

I liked this place. You can buy beautiful fashion jewelary. Everything is inexpensive. You can even find good and quality stuff there. Only thing you have to walk a lot. You shouldn't miss this flea market.

Compared to many years ago, when we first visited Rome, the Porta Portese Sunday market has been gentrified considerably. No more beggars and shell games, but serious stalls with merchandise worth a look. The only hazard to be aware of are the pickpockets. A notable observation was, that most stalls were managed by people from the fare east, and mostly... More

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

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.
