  • 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)

  • Massive outdoor flea market. Crowded. Lots of similar vendors, clothes, shoes, bags. Good if you want deals. Unsure of quality
  • It's a must-see in Rome, since this market is part of its traditional Sunday morning. The most interesting area is the second-hand one, where you'll find bric a brac of any kind at a price that needs to be bargained. Be very careful with pickpockets, since the take advantage of the multitude of people to steal as much as possible.
  • A long stretch of stalls selling antiques, accessories, etc. I recommend you to go on Sunday Morning. Some stalls start to close around lunchtime.
  • Lovely place, specially on Sunday. Lots of people, so be ready to be overwhelmed with crowds.
  • Pretty crappy filled with importer cheap clothes a different shoes hardly any flea market stalls

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.
