Little worth buying and hardly any antiques stores. Mostly jumble sale stores of clothing and shoes or the same type of stores you get on an English market with cheap, low quality goods. If you only have a short holiday in Rome, this will disappoint as it is not in the attractive, older part of Trestavere.

I was expecting flea market with authentic items. But the wast majority is low quality, "made in china" clothes that I wouldn't dare to wear. Many toys for little ones ( I bought one but unfortunately my LO didn't appreciate it at all). If your main target is HM and Primark - you can find something in there too. But... More

I'm not even sure we got half way through it to be honest. In saying that anyone that knows me knows that I take shopping very seriously (more sport than hobby) but it was exhausting! There was lots of tables with junk items (made in china, poor quality items that weren't of much interest) but I definitely bought some of... More

If you like the flea market scene this is the place, This huge market stretched from arch entry to the neighborhood and inside the neighborhood, many stalls selling almost any junk you could think of, clothes, bags, souvenirs, second hand etc' prices are reasonable and you should negotiate the price. keep your bags and wallets secure, this was the main...

It is known for its flea market, however this is also nice to walk around in the beautiful Trastavere neighborhood. Stop in and have a look at any of the churches in this area.

if you have some free time, it's very big and there is a big selection of second hand items. You need patience in order to find something nice and useful for you.

It is only open on Sunday, but it is enormous. Stalls stretch on both sides of the street for over a mile. Not all of the vendors speak English, but with a bit of effort, you will be able to communicate with all of them. Restaurants are also part of the area. We took a public bus alongside the river...

I love this market, it is the second time we have visited (last time was in 2010) and it was just as good as I remembered . There are some areas that are really crowded, like the clothing section, but personally I think that is the least interesting part. It is a fabulous place to find old treasures big and... More
