Like all the markets in Rome, the Esquiline Market, also known as Piazza Vittorio market, is a colourful, lively, loud and crowded place, but it has that little bit extra compared to others of its own kind. In fact, here you can find goods from all over the world: it is the multi-ethnic market of Rome. Have a walk among the stalls that sell colourful spices, fragrant rice, odd vegetables and local products. This market shows how a peaceful coexistence of different cultures is possible, and how food can even improve it!

The Esquiline Market is a special place where Halal butchers, Sinhalese greengrocers and Roman fishmongers live together in peace and harmony. In this market you will hear manifold of languages, walking through a maze of colors and dialects. Getting lost within the market stalls can be a unique experience, you will be guided only by your own curiosity! We recommend also the drapery market, located just adjacent to the one selling foodstuff. Here you will find precious clothing fabrics and curtains that once belonged to Eastern princes and princesses: they will make you daydream!

Sant’Eusebio Church – Dating back to the V century, the Church occupies the place where it was once supposed to be the house of the Christian martyr to whom it is dedicated. The structure of the Church has underwent several changes through the centuries, but it has maintained a peculiarity: every year on the 17th of January, the feast day of Anthony the Great, patron of animals, the priest gives the benediction to animals.

Alchemy Gate – In time of economic crisis, converting metal into gold can certainly turn out to be useful! Maybe not everybody knows that in Vittorio Square, in the heart of Rome, there is a magic door…
