Porta Portese Review
Rome's biggest flea market is at Porta Portese, which welcomes 100,000 visitors every Sunday from 7 am until 2 pm. Larger than the St. Ouen in Paris, this mecca of flea markets is easily accessible with Tram 8. Like one vast yard sale, the market disgorges mountains of new and secondhand clothing, furniture, pictures, old records, used books, vintage clothing, and antiques—all at rock-bottom prices (especially if you're adept at haggling). There is a jovial atmosphere, with an aroma of foods wafting in the air and people crowding around the stalls, hoping to pick up a 1960s Beatles album or a rare Art Deco figurine. Just make sure you bring cash, as stallholders don't accept credit cards and the nearest available ATM is a hike. And watch your purse—this is a popular area with pickpockets.
