On this 3-hour small-group walking tour with an expert local guide, discover some of the thousands of small shops and vendors selling everything from paintings, decorative furniture and antique textiles to vintage clothing, jewelry and bags. As you explore, your knowledgeable guide will explain the history of the market, which dates back to 1885, while showing you many of the secret corners of the vibrant market.

While searching for hidden gems, your guide will be on hand to help you negotiate prices and organize packing and shipping, so you can land great deals and take your items safely back home with you.
