Porta Portese

Flea market enthusiasts who wish to see a different side of Rome, should head to this mammoth flea market located behind the Porta Portese in Trastevere. Hosting hundreds of stalls selling everything from rare books, vintage phones and chandeliers, to spare bike parts and DVDs, the Porta Portese flea market is crazily busy and a lot of fun. As a matter of facts, the Porta Portese mercatino sells everything you can possibly imagine. This flea market does not have the most amazing antique section compared to other flea markets in Rome, particularly if you’ve been spoiled by the impressive selection and quality of the antiques sold Via dei Coronari. But if you’re lucky, you might find brash brass, noisy clocks, and old paintings capturing local imagery from times that have long gone by. However, there is something distinctly Italian about the whole experience you’ll get at the Porta Portese flea market. So even if you don’t find a hidden gem, you will always get something from your trip there.
