    Verona, Perugia, Todi, Terni and Padova are NOT in Tuscany. Can you please verify before posting? Doesnt take very long to see that Padova, for example, is not even close to Tuscany.

    I was hoping specifically to find any info on the possibility of a flea market on a Friday in Venice. This was all of little use, unless I liked dodging ads.

    Hi there! Stumbled upon your post and I am so impressed by the recent and quick response to your comments so I thought I would try to reach you as well. I am currently in the lazio region and looking for an antique flea to visit this weekend. Was hoping for other than Rome. You mention viterbo has one on the 3rd Sunday but I will not be here then. I asked a local and they mentioned Viterbo might have one this coming weekend (the 1st one of the month) too. Is there a way to verify this without making the trip there? We were also told that Arrezo has a huge one this coming weekend, but we figure it is because the Palio is in nei ghboring Siena…and that is a little far for us to drive for a day trip.

    Thank you for your time in helping us find such. And if Rome is our best option, please advise which one will offer the most reasonable prices– Gracie Mille!!
