Via Sannio Market
I´m a huge big fan of markets and there are lots of them in Rome. Usually the markets in Rome are open during sundays but Via Sannio Market is open weekdays 8-2 and Saturday 8-5. Via Sannio Market, often called the American Market, is famous for its cheep vintage clothing, military surplus, leather jackets, fake handbags and accessorize.
During 70´s Via Sannio Market was the perfect place to find the latest trends but today the market has become more touristic. Here you can find some decent items at a very low price, saying that, don’t forget to bargain the price. I just bought a gorgeous vintage Wranger jeans jacket and I bargained € 5, from €25 to €20, and I think you can bargain even more if you are in the mood. It´s really important to don’t get scammed as different eager salesmen say different price for the same item.
Today we are leaving Rome for Pescara, a seaside resort just at opposite side of Rome. Its kind of sad leaving Rome, but at the same time a relief because the heat have been a pain in the —! Last night we were at Viale Trastevere and finally find what Rome and Italy is all about. Nice small streets, cozy restaurants and a great atmosphere. Have to rush to the train and will wright about it later tonight.
