The vibe at Mercato delle Stampe is relaxed and laid back. Spend your day sauntering past the permanent stalls, flicking through old photography books and dusty novels as you go. Most of the books are in Italian, so if you can’t speak the language – at least there is a frenzy of art prints and illustration books to keep you occupied.

Mercato delle Stampe is situated in the heart of Rome, within walking distance of some big cultural spots, such as Ara Pacis Museum and Galleria del Cembalo. The famous Trevi Fountain is also just a 10-minute stroll from the Mercato delle Stampe. Which means before heading to the market you can make a wish at the fountain that you’ll find your dream vintage item – and later discover it at Mercato delle Stampe.

The booths at Mercato delle Stampe are adorned with classic novels and Art Nouveau posters displayed in the windows. There are, of course, many other antiques and second-hand trinkets for sale, such as delicate jewelry, glass vases, vintage suitcases and old-fashioned ornaments. However, what truly makes this market stand out from the rest is its abundance of prints, postcards, books and retro posters.

A visit to this vibrant market full of aesthetic treasures won’t leave you disappointed. Locals come back time and time again, whilst tourists never forget this haven – and make it a priority to tell everyone they meet about the delights of the Mercato delle Stampe flea market.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
