"Porta Portese Market" Trastevere Tip by melissa_bel
Trastevere, Rome: 65 reviews and 134 photos
It's a beautiful Sunday, by chance, you woke up early, why not drop by the Porta Portese Market? Located in the Trastevere neighbourhood, it's a huge flea market where you can find anything (provided you go there early enough). It's packed, noisy,and utterly Roman. You'll find everything from Football jerseys to beach towel, from antique (or antique-looking) religious painting to genuine old books, from faux Gucci bags to real vintage Gucci bags.
Don't forget to barter though. Having a "banchinna" at Porta Portese is a sign of prestige for vendors and if you want to have a good deal (and gain their respects, which will help lower the price), don't get too impressed by their bartering abilities.
Try to get there before 9 am, at 10, it's really, really busy and most of the good deals are gone. The market is open until 1:30.
Address: Near the end of Viale Trastevere
