The mercatinis are a great occasion to bathe in the life of the city, walking among stands of every type. To look, to snoop, to touch, to make good business or simply to purchase a beautiful souvenir. The mercatino has returned vivacity’ to a plaza sometimes neglected by romans who rarely choose it as destination for their Sunday walk.
This Square is especially frequented by the inhabitants of the area and tourists feel always attracted by it. Now while you wait for the Easter, every third Sunday of the month, from 10.am.until sunset you can enjoy a nice walk in the market to find some pleasant temptations: ceramic or chocolate hand-painted eggs, floral decorations, silver pieces for your collection, postcards and ancient photos, postage stamps, old porcelain cups and so many other things.
Near the square there are many restaurants and a couple of museums, so you have plenty of options to spend a very relaxed Sunday. Besides, here you are near the famous Via del Corso, packed with cafes and stores, so you can decide what to do after taking a look at the antiques: you can enjoy the local cuisine or do some shopping!
This might be a wonderful plan for a beautiful Sunday in Rome, and the best way to end such a wonderful day is to have some rest in a good located hotel with high standards of quality and comfort. Hotel Des Artistes, furnished with many antiques of the early 20th century, and Yes Hotel are both excelent options!
