Rome’s biggest and most famous flea market grew out of the city’s thriving black market after the end of World War II. A lingering air of illegality still persists here, so watch out for pickpockets. Dealers peddle all manner of items: bootleg CDs, furniture, clothes, fake designer gear and car stereos of dubious origin.
