Our schedule just worked out that we are in Rome with free time two Mondays -- September 30 then again October 7. We are newbies so we are not sure what to see/do on Mondays since many sights are closed. Are there markets open on Mondays, specialty shops, or those out of the way places that locals frequent that most tourists don't ever visit? We have found, with help from TA experts, special places in Paris, London, and Istanbul off the beaten path. We can exchange hidden treasures in those cities for hidden gems in Rome if anyone is interested.
