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
