Porta Portese Flea Market


On Sundays from 7am to 1pm of the day, each street vendor from Trastevere and the surrounding Castelli Romani prepares a shop at the sprawling Porta Portese open-air flea market. Vendors are disposed to sell merchandise ranging from secondhand paintings of Madonnas and termite-eaten Il Duce wooden medallions, to pseudo-Etruscan hairpins, rosaries, 1947 TVs, and books printed in 1835.

Active shoppers can often look a good buy. If you've ever been impacted with the bargaining power of the Spaniard, you haven't seen anything until you've bartered with an Italian. As at any street market, beware of pickpockets.
