Full description of the tour

Today you will learn about 22 centuries of  history, which will be shared with knowledge, humor and passion on this Jewish Rome tour.

The Jewish ghetto was established in 1555 and was controlled by the papacy until the capture of Rome in 1870. Here the Jews were confined in a walled area often subject to floods of the nearby river with three gates that were locked at night. Not only were the Jews confined, they were also subject to professional and economic restrictions.

It is a common misconception that Rome is only a Christian city, but it’s not. In fact, in Rome you will see more Jewish sites you could imagine.

This tour will offer you the opportunity to visit the Jewish Ghetto with its complex variety of history, architecture and tradition. It’s one of the most fascinating areas of Rome, one with the highest number of examples of Roman and Medieval architecture – out of the very few – that still stand in Rome.

You will be taken on an interesting tour of this very rich cultural heritage, visiting the Ghetto and its highlights.

The Roman Ghetto is also full of restaurants offering delicious Jewish-Roman dishes, like the famous fried artichokes, the “carciofi alla giudia”. A stop in the Jewish bakery is a must and will make your trip to Rome unforgettable.
