Itinerary

Take a fascinating 1.5-hour walking tour of Rome's Jewish Ghetto to get a deeper understanding of this neighborhood's complicated and colorful history. As you follow the meandering alleyways, our experienced guide will tell you about the tenacity, culture, and sense of community that have molded this region over the ages.

Starting point of your trip is the historic theater known as Teatro Marcello, which is a scaled-down version of the Colosseum. You'll come upon the Portico d'Ottavia as you meander through the slums. Even though its imposing portals are all that remain, they connect the past and present by framing one of Rome's most magnificent views. The synagogue is a tribute to the resilience of the Jewish community in Rome, with its exteriors displaying a combination of Egyptian, Moorish, and Assyrian-Babylonian characteristics. Not only is it a house of worship, but it also represents resiliency and rebirth in the wake of the ghetto's demise.

Wander down the lively Via del Portico d'Ottavia, the district's main thoroughfare, where you can enjoy authentic Jewish-Roman cuisine in charming eateries. The tour also includes a visit to Piazza Mattei, where you can see the charming Fountain of the Turtles, a prime example of Renaissance style. Explore Palazzo Manili, Piazza delle Cinque Scole, and Piazza Cenci, each of which narrates a different chapter of the history and present of the ghetto. The journey comes to an end at Ponte Fabricio, which offers stunning vistas and the ideal setting for contemplating the complex tapestry of history you have just been a part of.
