Many locals buying meats and vegetables for the upcoming week. Prices seemed to be reasonable. Most stalls were open on a Saturday morning. A few restaurants. One really good pizza place. It takes 25 minutes from city center, then go do things along the river,...More

Tons of vendors here selling produce, meat, prepared food, even clothes and other merchandise. I was here for the food. Mordi e Vai lives up to the hype with the traditional Roman meat sandwiches. Pizza at Casa Manco was delicious and they even give out...More

Don’t waste your time unless all you want is a good cappuccino for 1€. Everything else is basically pedestrian stuff and over priced. Lovely riverside neighborhood, however, with a most pleasing architecture and some stunning courtyards.

Lot of everything, nice and lively market place. You can buy something to eat from different little places and eat in a cafe in a center of market place. Delicious! Place was not so crowded and atmosphere is very Italian ....

Having been to many markets in big cities in Europe such as Barcelona etc I have to say this market was overall a disappointment. It is not very large and being so new and under cover it felt a bit soulless - lacking in character...More

During our trip to Rome, we stayed in an apartment in Testaccio, so a (daily!) trip to the market made perfect sense, and is now on my to do list on every visit. For a crazy cheap coffee in the morning, fresh produce, wine and...More

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
hit, the area is full of locally owned small

Hello, Because 26 December is a considered a holiday, I don’t think the market will be open. I’d go to the website to check but I doubt it as much will be closed here in Rome. Enjoy your trip!

Perhaps the fastest and simplest way is the metro. It's only a few stops on blue line. Get off at Piramide.

If you prefer the scenic route ride any of the buses headed down the Tiber towards Piramide and walk from there.
