About the Guru

I was born and raised in Rome, the Eternal City. I am a Licensed Tour Guide and I graduated in History of Rome. I love meeting people from all over the world, sharing with them my knowledge of the most important sights along with the lesser known ones. Being a Tour Guide means to me leading tours with passion and with a hint of humor.

About the Tour

I will lead you to discover some historic districts of the city, where time seems to stand still. Trastevere, the area across the Tiber where once lived the Etruscans and where later many immigrants from the East also settled, mainly Jews. Along the tour I will show to you the place where once stood what was believe to be the most ancient Jewish Synagogue in Rome. Crossing the river we will walk through the Tiberine Island before we reach the Jewish District, once called the Ghetto. As Rome was the house of the oldest Jewish community in all of Europe, this beautiful, thriving neighborhood is as central to the history of the city as it is to the whole Jewish History. What will we visit? :) 1. Trastevere 2. Vicolo dell'Atleta 3. Isola Tiberina 4. Portico d'Ottavia 5. Jewish Ghetto Minimum 2 people

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: On Piazza Giocchino Belli at the steps of the statue, I will hold a stick with a headscarf on top

Tour interessantissimo. Maria Grazia è preparatissima e molto gentile. L'esperienza è stata ancora migliore di quanto mi aspettassi, sempre interessante e mai noioso. Anche le mie figlie adolescenti hanno molto apprezzato. Grazie!
