Fodor's Review

Go to this famous market on Saturday morning for bargains on secondhand books, antiques, and clothing. There is good browsing to be had among the stalls, which spill out of Borgo Dora into the surrounding side streets. During the second weekend of every month, the market extends its hours into Sunday, becoming the so-called Gran Balon. (Be aware, however, that the market is also famous for its pickpockets.)
