“Hidden Treasures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

If you have a few hours to kill and are in the area I would recommend coming to Porta Portese.

Yes there are cheap knock offs and cheap jewelry but there are also other good stalls suitable for everyone, infact there are hundreds !

To walk from one end of the market to the other will take you a good two hours so bring sensible shoes!

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Was looking forward to visiting this market, but left hugely disappointed. Only cheap and fake stuff, doesn't have that unique feeling that you expect from Italian market.

“Sunday market - disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We were recommended to go to the market here which is held every Sunday. Very disappointing unless you want to by cheap sports wear and obviously fake goods. No sign of anything unique or interesting.

“Crazy Flea Market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

A mixed bag.
Yes, there are a few 'flea market' stands but you really have to work to find them. It is mostly clothing, inexpensive underwear, kitchen utensils, and reading glasses. Lots of food stands. Colorful slice of life. Big crowds. Watch for pick-pockets here.
It was fun for a couple hours.
