Full description
Your guided tour will start in Rome's Jewish ghetto, established in 1555 by Pope Paul IV for the 5,000 Jews that lived in Rome at the time. The former walled quarter sits close to the river Tiber, and today, is one of the most fascinating quarters of the city. Learn about the Jewish history and presence in Rome. Led by an experienced guide, visit Jewish-owned businesses, explore kosher restaurants and see the synagogue of Rome. The Porticus Octaviae will be one of the most recognized landmarks in the ghetto, which sits in the middle of Piazza Mattei. Next, head over the Tiber to the historic Trastevere neighborhood. Trastevere is a charming area filled with narrow winding streets, alleyways and pedestrian squares. Visit some of Rome’s most important churches, including Santa Cecilia, and walk over the Ponte Rotto, the oldest stone bridge in Rome. These two areas are often overlooked by tourists but they have plenty to offer. Walking around these neighborhoods will be the best way to get a feel for this Bohemian area of Rome.
