I am fortunate to have a rented apartment just a few blocks from the Mercato. What a lively place it is and you can find your food's desire with little trouble here. They have fresh vegetables and fruits both seasonal and exotic and butchers who will send you home with the cut of meat or seafood you are looking for.... More

The market of Piazza Vittorio used to be an open-air market, but it has since been moved to a markethall very close to the piazza. I've only visited the new incarnation, "Nuevo Mercato", which is the most diverse and rich market I've ever visited. We were staying in Rome for two weeks in September 2012, and we shopped here various... More

This market hall is pure delight. The fruit and veggies are fresh and drop dead cheap. I get my trolley full of stuff and pay 10 Euros. And you cannot only buy delicious local stuff, I can discover exotic vegetables you have never seen in your live. My kids love the more gruesome part and stare at the heads of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
