Vintage Shops in Rome 

Wondering where to find the best vintage shops in Rome? 

vintage shop in romeYou can find some real bargains and beautiful styles when you go vintage shopping in Rome.

Whether you are looking for a bargain, or just like browsing for gems in vintage or flea markets, Rome has plenty of options.

Vintage Shops in Rome - where to find those hidden gems

When I first moved to Rome in 2001, I could count on one hand the number of vintage shops in Rome. These were shops that would sell refurbished high-end brand name items at a still very high price.

These shops didn't interest me. I figured if I wanted things like that, I could get them at outlets, and they'd be new. Plus, these shops did not really offer much of a bargain.

There was one weekly flea market and there were a few scant places to get second-hand goods, but not that many.

Maybe because the economy has changed, or because there is now a big interest in Rome Shopping Tours, I have seen an explosion in second-hand and vintage shops in Rome.

Based on all my years helping visitors (hotel guests, friends, family) with their shopping needs and questions, and doing so much of my own research, here are some of my ideas where to find:

Vintage shops in Rome - the real deal

True vintage shops in Rome were not really much of thing until recently. Buying used items was less part of Italian culture than it is in some other cultures. 

Now, I can barely keep up with how many small vintage shops in Rome I see just walking through different neighborhoods.

Here are some of my favorites:

Moll Flanders

Via del Governo Vecchio is a long, winding shopping street behind Piazza Navona with lots of vintage shops in Rome to browse. I've mentioned some of them on this page.

Individual shop hours vary but even just walking along this street is a fun adventure, and you'll find plenty of other shops here as well.

Flea markets in Rome

PORTA PORTESE

Rome's most famous flea market is called "Porta Portese". Named for a specific city gate, the market actually takes up a much larger area once a week on Sunday.

flea marketFlea market photo by Simone Pellegrini on Unsplash.

In the last few decades, it's kind of become more of a junky market with many fewer quality antiques, and a lot more cheap clothes and household gadgets.

It can be a fun place to browse if you have a lot of patience. And if you have a good eye and keep at it, you may well find some gems.

AddressPiazza Porta Portese and surrounding streets

HoursSunday 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM

VIA SANNIO

Visit my page with the best 3-day itinerary in Rome for first-timers.


Via dei Coronari

Via dei Coronari is one of my favorite streets in Rome, period. It's a charming cobblestone street dotted with antique shops, cafés, gelato shops, picturesque doorways, and an old-world Rome vibe.

Yes, it's become pretty touristy in recent years. But that hasn't changed its allure.

Via dei Coronari used to be THE street for antique dealers. You could not go 10 feet without running into an antique shop. Sadly, many of these shops have gone out of business.

via dei coronari in romeVia dei Coronari near Piazza Navona in Rome is one of the loveliest streets to stroll down, period. It's also an excellent shopping street, including for antiques.

But you will still find quite a few dealers left. Sometimes their shops are closed but there is a sign in the window with a phone number if you want to make an appointment.

Via del Boschetto

A friend of mine who is an antique dealer in Rome has shown me many antique furniture and lighting shops on via del Boschetto (Monti neighborhood, near the Colosseum).

As with via dei Coronari, above, via del Boschetto used to have many more antique shops than it does today.

via del boschettoVia del Boschetto is one of the main streets in Monti meighborhood. And it's got a fair selection of antique shops, among other unique and artisan shops.

The Monti neighborhood has lots of the best vintage shops in Rome, so this area is still an excellent destination for antiquing, as well as poking into little boutiques, wine bars, and cafés.
