Just south of Trastevere, every Sunday morning until 2pm, Rome's residents and visitors swarm to the Porta Portese flea market to pick through every kind of odd and end under the sun, looking for treasures. And there are plenty of treasures. The clothing sections are the most crowded, and are filled with necessities like socks and scarves but also funky vintage clothes and jewelry. Check out antique paintings, chandeliers, 1970s albums, mid-century furniture, 19th-centrury books, World War II memorabilia, and other knickknacks to give as gifts or keep for yourself. And all for bargain prices. After a few hours there, you may feel exhausted. Fortunately, there is plenty of coffee nearby.
Via Portuense, from Porta Portese to via Ettore Rolli
The Porta Portese market is really a Roman tradition, meeting on Sundays in this spot for decades. Be prepared to get lost and bring cash (but watch out for pickpockets).
