Market Day in Rome
This is the largest flea market in Europe and we found some amazing finds there. It starts on Sunday morning at 7-8 am, and definitely get there early because by 10-11 am it's packed solid and you can barely walk. I love pashminas, and in the states they're $75-$250. At the market they were 3 euro! There is everything from clothing, leather, purses, glasses, souveniers, antiques, books, chandeliers and anything else you could think of. Definitely worth it!
the weird of P.P. is that if you are looking for something you find anything except...but it seems to be life.Anyway most things you like are things you never thought you wanted before...even you never thought it existed before.Here is a square where there are the gypsyies selling...selling...what the hell do they sell...even their sister if there is one left...of course the most precious things are swindle,so,do not believe that she is REALLY the sister...(if you are lucky she may be the cousin).
Porta Portese:..to be safe..
yes,there are some things to beware in P.P.,but if I tell you,and you will be safe,will safe your money and your wealth and your health I wonder why are you travelling and I wonder what will eat someone that night that you have been safe..."today it's you...tomorrow it's you the same!"
Porta Portese:scarpe usate(?)
...of course there is the problem that if something is "sec.hand" there is only one of it...and you have more choice if you arrive first...but there is a lot of choice anytime you arrive...too much!also if there are a lot of horrible things and the conquer is to find the "pearl" between all that apocalypse..but only 5 even 4 euros for this wonderful shirt?...what a conquer!...and there is also who buy sec.hand shoes...walkwalkwalkwalk neither afterlife someone gives them peace..walkwalkwalk better so,it was boring to be left on a bench!
Porta Portese:second handsssss
saturday night (late night):"I wanna go to porta portese tomorrow...""so you MUST get up early!...otherwise you won't find anything..."this is a typical dialogue,but do not believe too much...going to P.P. is important because of sec.hand things...especially dresses...veryvery cheap and in a big variety especially brought there from who-knows-where by sellers from Naples....
Porta Portese...cosa vuoi di pi??
where:in Rome between quarter "Testaccio" and Trastevere

the Porta Portese flea market
On our last trip to Italy our last day was a Sunday, so I decided we should check out this absolutely huge flea market. I just wanted to see it, I didn't think I was going to find a 300-year-old sculpture for 50 cents or anything. It was raining, and we walked around forever and my feet really started to hurt. It was bad. However, I did find a cool bag--I even tried to haggle, but they explained the bags had a fixed price for everyone and I chose to believe them. I still get compliments on this bag, so it was worth it. Mike also took the opportunity to try the famous porchetta--roasted pork carved and tucked into a roll--and it was indeed delicious.
