My family greatly enjoyed getting out of the tourist areas of Italy and seeing how the Italians really live. This is the place for that. Go for the experience and see how they buy their fresh fish, fruits, salamis and vegetables for their week. We picked up some cheap scarves as souvenirs. Would visit again.

A place worth visiting but in my opinion not really for bargain shopping - rather for the experience itself. There are liitle tourists here, mostly locals going for grocery shopping. The grocery part offers great, fresh local food for reasonable price - we bought our share of cheeses and salami there and were.

Yet, this is a normal market selling everything - from fruit to (low quality) clothing, shoes, cheap watches etc. You do find the occasional flea market style stand but trying to find something wearable ie fashionable was totally...

Visit Viale Papiniano market on a Saturday morning. The stalls stretch as far as the eye can see, selling all kinds of clothing, fashionable dresses can be found for less than 10 euros, although the quality could be spotty. We particularly enjoyed the little food market as well, which had a number of stalls selling fresh veggies and fruits, meats,... More
