  • In 1643 Urban VIII Barberini commissioned delle Mura Gianicolensi architects Julius Buratti and Marcantonio De Rossi with the intention to enclose within the walls the Gianicolo. Porta Portese was completed in 1644, under Pope Innocent X Pamphilj; supported by four columns on high stylobate, presents a lintel with balustrade and two lateral niches. Following the opening of this new port, was made the traditional market of Porta Portese, continuation of the flourishing black market that took place in Tor di Nona in the years of World War II. It is filled with so many objects of all kinds: small furniture, books, records, paintings, clothes. Sometimes you can find something interesting because beautiful or because of value, even if the situation seems worn and you run the risk of buying items that are worth nothing, among people of all kinds and all colors.

  • It's worth at least once in a lifetime visit the famous market that takes place along the streets which depart from porta portese. Big mess but also the heart of Rome and the Romans. Many business beware of deceptions. Is everything and more. Viva viva Italy Rome deserves!

  • What's better than to stroll on a Sunday morning on a market? And then have fun acting who is here real market is well connected by public transport, unimaginably large, but still there's the same almost everywhere. The for this but really cheap. Buy now, not next to the first, it all comes back.

  • It's OK, if you have a lot of time and already seen everything go to see, but there are much better places in Rome.
  • Really nice flee market on sundays. Be carefull - It goes on forever :-)
  • A traditional market with history. This is a really really old traditional market. You find everything. And for everything I mean EVERYTHING. From t-shirts to antique paintings in really good prices.
  • Wasn't too impressive
  • The Sunday market is huge and full of a variety of different hings
