About the guru MariaGrazia

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

Mariagrazia è stata una guida molto gentile e competente, ci ha raccontato moltissime cose interessanti. Se il gruppo fosse stato più numeroso forse sarebbe stato utile poter avere gli auricolari ma essendo stato un gruppo ristretto di persone non è stato necessario. Guida veramente consigliata!

Molto brava e professionale la guida... ben preparata e capace di gestire il gruppo, sempre attenta. Davvero bello il tour, interessante e stimolante. Tra l’altro abbiamo trovato, grazie a Maria Grazia, un paio di trattorie tipiche romanesche: mangiato bene e speso poco.

L'esperienza con Maria Grazia è stata molto piacevole e gradita anche ai nostri ragazzi di 10 e 13 anni. Lei è puntuale, preparata e pronta a far vivere il quartiere ai turisti con informazioni accurate e aneddoti coinvolgenti.

Vivamente consigliato!
