- Antique collectors are well aware of the virtues of the Neapolitan flea markets and junk shops. The most famous markets are Fiera Antiquaira Napoletana and Mostra Mercato Constantinopoli. On them you can buy things made in various styles - baroque, empire, rococo; cameos made of precious or semi-precious stones, corals, frozen lava of Vesuvius; ceramics, mosaics, preserved from the times of antiquity; copies of finds from the excavations of Pompeii. As always in such cases, you should be very careful. To purchase a thing with a history, you should be "in the know" in order to determine the date of its manufacture and the approximate cost.
