Campo dei Fiori
Campo dei Fiori: This market is the most famous in Rome and has been around since the 17th century. Although there aren't many local sellers anymore, it's still a nice place to take a stroll, have an aperitivo, or enjoy a quick snack like white pizza and mortadella (cold cuts). The market operates every morning, and at night, the square becomes lively and bustling with people.
This Sunday market offers a wide range of items, from vintage furniture to bicycles, clothes, and second-hand goods. It's a large market located near the Trastevere district. Take a leisurely walk on a Sunday morning and then have lunch in the charming Trastevere area.
Monti Second hand Market
Taking place every Saturday and Sunday in the picturesque district of Monti, this vintage market is an opportunity to meet locals and purchase unique items or simply enjoy the DJ set.
This market is popular among teenagers looking for non-original brand clothing. If you have kids who enjoy shopping, it's worth visiting this small market. Don't forget to negotiate prices as the sellers are open to bargaining. The market is open every day and is located near the San Giovanni station.
Market near the Vatican
Prati market, located near the Vatican, is the neighborhood market of the Prati quarter, which means "gardens" in Italian. The district was built on an area that was once filled with gardens and greenery. Today, Prati is a residential area, and if you have an apartment nearby, you can buy fresh ingredients for your recipes at this market. Another interesting market near the Vatican Museums and Ottaviano Metro station is the Trionfale market, where we offer a guided combo tour of the Vatican Museums and food.
