We came early. About 8:30 AM. It was perfect timing. The sun wasn't that bad until 10 o'clock. It wasn't crowded yet, so we could walk freely. Porta Portese is huge. Sells all kinds of things: new and used; modern electronics and antique stuff; stolen phones and original brand perfumes; souvenirs and home essentials. If you forgot your charger at... More

Very cheap flea market run by professionals, beware. That said, you can buy almost anything here, from clothes to toys to cords for electronics. It's easy to bargain down prices, if you can do it with confidence.

This market is huge and has items of varying quality. Depending on what you like, you can find a bargain. I found some stylish and extremely comfortable shoes and lovely jewellery. All at prices I would never find in the UK for the quality. There was a lot of repetition of stalls and some were far better than others. It... More

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

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.
