Porta Portese Market - Review
When you have seen all that Rome has to offer (which is quite a lot), you can spend the final Sunday afternoon before returning browsing the Porta Portese market which is located on via Poruense.
This is traditionally a flea market and is a draw for tourists as well as the local people. It is open for one day of the week only and you can hence expect it to be quite crowded.
People can select from antiquities, trinkets, pottery, locally made sculptures, jewelry, books to even bicycles and kitchen appliances. On can surely have a lot of fun haggling over the prices and should also enjoy simply watching the local people striving to get the best deal.

Porta Portese Market, Rome Reviews
Such a disappointment! I read two different articles advocating this market and saying if you can imagine it they have it at this market - The entire thing is filled with replicant stalls selling absolute junk! There was a handful of shops selling antique or unique goods the rest of them were carbon copies of each other asking for way too much money to sell junk - apparently everything is Silver even if it’s brown. Don’t go here if you want to find unique goods this is a basic b@tch market!
Huge flee market! Nice variety. Cheap. Quality is not wow but good value for money. I think it is open only on Sunday until noon, check it before you go there(I was on Sunday).
Once was an "experience" to walk through it, you could find original, real authentic, 2nd hand good stuff. From clothes to furniture to collections of comics, vinyl, vintage jewelry, even ancient Roman objects & sculptures. Now is invaded by Chinese & Indian stuff.
It's a lot of stalls selling cheap clothes and accessories made in China etc. The stall holders will tell you that it's handmade in Italy... What a load of nonsense! There's a few stalls selling older things but a lot of it isn't very good quality. We went thinking that there would be a lot of antiques but were sadly disappointed. So it's great if you want some cheap new clothes but otherwise not worth the trip.
Poor and to mutch chinese and Pakistan style trumpery. We wait some transitional Italy!
