Flea Markets

If you are the kind of traveler who  enjoys visiting the local bargain markets, make sure you make time to visit the flea markets in Rome. These markets range from a minimum of 30 stalls to a maximum of 240 stalls! Each market offers a wide array of old and new items :  antiques, collectibles, clothing, accessories, prints, crafts and more.  Just remember that most of them are held on Sunday mornings such as the city’s oldest and most famous: Porta Portese.  But there are markets that are open from Mondays to Saturdays like the one in Via Sannio, very close to San Giovanni underground stop (line A).  Just a couple of reminders, bring small denominations of money and avoid bringing your credit cards. Last but not the least, beware of pick pockets!  Visiting a local flea market in Rome is not only budget friendly but is worth the experience when you are able to find something unique to take back home.
