Explore the Porta Portese Sunday Market

There are several things to do and see when visiting Rome. However, your visit will not be a full Rome experience until you visit the Porta Portese Sunday Market. The market is located in the Trastevere area, where it began around the end of the World War II. It was started as a new location for trading black market goods. However, over the years, it has grown into a full-fledged open-air market, selling all types of goods. It is a huge flea market, in fact the largest, in Italy with more than 4,000 stalls. The market is open on Sunday mornings, from 7 AM to 1 PM.
