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 4 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

Maria Grazia was an amazing tour guide! She gave an extensive background on the Jewish history in Rome from the beginning to now. She pointed out lots of details during our tour and recommended restaurants for us after. Thank you so much!!
