Flea Markets in Emilia Romagna (Modena, Ferrara, Bologna)

Modena flea market

Parco Novi, Modena –  Saturday and Sunday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm  (Fourth weekend of the month)

On the fourth Saturday and Sunday of every month, the Modena flea market displays a variety of antiques that can leave more than one visitor surprised by its condition and value: objects of all kinds can be found from mink coats at a great price and in perfect condition, to porcelain dolls or pianos, the question being how do they get the stuff out to the market.

Halfway between ancient times and a flea market, the Modena flea market offers the opportunity to spend a good hour browsing through the various stalls.
