  • Nice weather and Nice the whole market about hiked and that takes a while, because there are a lot of stalls. Very busy, but the atmosphere is fine. Many Romans who sit there on their free Sunday.

  • This was a great flea market, but don’t go expecting anything but a flea market. There are booths with cheap Chinese stuff, but also vintage clothing, antiques, Peruvian clothing, Indian jewelry, shoe...  more »
  • Was the Roman flea market. Was everything. Today it seems a giant jeans. However, is an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday morning. Get up early, though.

  • Every Sunday there is a market here. It extends over a mile to the South. There are hundreds of stalls. They mainly sell clothing of any kind. They also have kitchen ware, gadgets, antiques and collectibles. The prices on clothes are great. If you bargain with them you can get further discounts. It’s usually crowed but it’s a lot of fun.
  • On Sundays, porta portese has a huge market with very low price goods of very high quality: watches, underwear, sweaters, coats, gloves, belts, backpacks, and everything for the house (pots, cookware, tools). It is remarkable. Only sunday. The market is huuuge.
  • If you visit the place on Sunday, you will love it. It is full of people who look for all kinds of things. It is a big market.
  • I was very disappointed with this place. If you're expecting a bustling flea market that has the same goods as London's Portobello or the Paris Marche aux Puces don't bother to make the trek here on a Sunday morning. The place appeals more to average Italians shopping for household goods and imported clothes. The only interesting stalls I found were two! One sold vintage magazines from the Il Boom years (50s Italy of the Dolce Vita vibe) and the other was a silver dealer midway along the 3km trek. The stalls repeat themselves after a while and the place is really a slice of Italian suburbia. Not much touristic appeal!
  • The market is what it's famous for but it's beautiful and there are nice restaurants, especially on the Tevere.
