Hg2 : The Hedonist

Porta Portese

The Porta Portese flea market is based around the Piazza di Porta Portese but in reality sprawls through deepest Trastevere and the brinks of Testaccio every Sunday. It may have become something of a tourist magnet, but if you can handle the scrum and the early start (get there by 9am at the latest), in amongst the cut-price electrical goods and football shirts there are occasional gems to be found, especially around the Piazza Ippolito Nievo. Prices are cheap but be prepared to haggle for that cashmere sweater and 1920s Russian clock.
