The antiques market in Ponte Milvio is the most important and one of the most select flea markets in Rome. Born almost twenty years ago, the Mercatino antiquariato di Ponte Milvio is a real tradition and a reference for Roman citizens, tourists, merchants and residents of central Italy.
The Mercatino antiquariato di Ponte Milvio takes place once a week in the area of Ponte Milvio, all year long (except in August). The flea market starts from the right side of the bridge, and spreads along the way Capoprati, following the Tiber river down to the Duca D’Aosta bridge (parallel to the bike path). The scenery in the background with the green trees, the flowing river and the beautiful sight on some of Rome’s most stunning architectural pieces, makes the Mercatino antiquariato di Ponte Milvio a trip on its own, even if you’re not on a shopping mood.
Each week, over 150 professional merchants gather from nearby regions of Italy (among which many high-quality antique dealers, collectors, art and antique objects amateurs, as well as artists, painters, sculptors, decorators, artisans, designers, and furniture experts) to expose their best pieces, which are the result of a continuous, tireless, passionate and wise search in the peninsula and abroad.
The Mercatino antiquariato di Ponte Milvio is one of Rome’s all time favorite flea markets and antiques markets. This event has always recorded a large turnout, thanks to an audience mainly composed of dealers and antiques lovers, flea market enthusiasts, but also of many foreigners in search of piece that can embellish their home.
