Testaccio market is the very heart of Rome's gastronomy.
Ancient Romans before had departed from nearby ports for far off lands such as North Africa and Egypt and had come back with ships laden with grain and olive oil and exotic wares to sell.
Trading in this area has been done for centuries and trading today in this market is just as vibrant in modern times.
This is an area that is tourist free and where you can experience true Roman life.
With over 50 food stalls to choose from offering anything from horse meat, to fish, chestnuts, pasta, prosciutto, and succulent tomatoes, there is always lots to choose from.
