This was a short walk from our hotel. Each booth is selling the same product. As you walk by each one the sales people use high pressure to make you buy. We were looking for a suitcase because one of ours was destroyed by the...More
You can arrive by underground, and the Mercato is very close to San Giovanni metro station. Just avoid the first sellers you encounter on entering Via Sannio - these are just junk sellers.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills.
