Jewish Ghetto Tour

Jewish Ghetto Tour

We will start the Jewish Rome Tour crossing an ancient Roman bridge connecting the charming Tiber Island to the left bank where Rome’s main Jewish Synagogue is situated; it was completed in 1904 in the area that was once Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, the small enclave where the Roman Jews were confined to live from 1555 to 1870. When open, we can visit the main Synagogue and the small Jewish Museum.

We will walk through the remaining areas of the former Jewish Ghetto and down the old lanes of first century b.c. Portico d’Ottavia, a Roman library transformed into a church where the Jews were forced to attend mass.

At the end, we’ll stop at the Kosher Bakery to taste the famous Pizza Giudia or if it is the right season we can eat the delicious jewish artichokes…
