Testaccio market

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.

  • Truly outstanding...The Althea Inn is not only our favorite of many places we have stayed in Rome, it's the best value.

  • Althea Inn is a special find in Rome. The surprisingly spacious flower-festooned balcony is a treat, but the rest of the facilities are excellent too...

  • Arriving back from a day's sightseeing it felt like a home away from home.

  • Our room was immaculate and peaceful, with the terrace being a perfect place for a late night glass of prosecco under the stars.
