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. Further on, you find on your right the historic Mercato, with some...More

Don't get aggressive here, get as creative as the exceptionally pushy & dodgy sellers. Hit them with prices that will floor them, then you might have a chance of getting something you want for a good price. Quality of the goods seems ok, but of...More

The market is right behind the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano. Like many have stated the dealers are pushy. But stop bothering you fast when you offer them a ridiculous low ball offer back. There is a whole area full of new Jeans ,t-shirt's...More

Basically, I, like many, found this market via internet search...with promises of second-hand & vintage wares on offer. Nope. Crappy knock-off bags and clothes and pushy vendors. Do not waste your time. Please.

We visit markets every now and then but the market at Via Sannio is the worst we have ever seen. Same bags etc all over, no variety. My recommendation is to visit other markets, for example the market in Firenze where you actually can find...More

Visit here if you want to be constantly approached and persuaded to buy anything from handbags and wallets to vintage and leather clothing.

At some point walking along "Via Sannio" turning on the right we found ourselves walking along this huge market, where we found big brands at very convenient prices! The only one headache of this adventure was the intrusiveness of the sellers: they really push too...More

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

its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
