  • The legendary traditional Roman market remains only a shadow and maybe I'm missing that, nothing different from many other markets.

  • True fascination is no longer the one described by poets and singers but remains a unique part of Rome at cinecitta, Chinese banks now everything is unique ... I will certainly visit again to see the colors and feel the smells

  • It is a big market where you can find everything (clothing, antiguidades,...) ideal for lovers of markets. It has having a flea market area multiplied by 10 and coupled rakes. And this is once a week, each Sunday, easily accessible by bus or tram. Tires take it all but worth it if you're a lover of the flea markets and second-hand objects. (There is a McDonald's at the end of the first street)

  • 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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
