It would be a shame – and, quite possibly, a sin – to leave the Italian capital without visiting at least one of the best markets in Rome. The Eternal City proudly upholds the daily or weekly market tradition with colourful, sometimes chaotic, souks selling everything from antiques to zucchini and books. Some of these markets have been setting up in the same spot for centuries, while others are upstarts that appeal to Rome’s hipsters and the growing international community. All can be considered shopping meccas, part and parcel of the city’s top attractions and certainly some of the best things to do while in town.
