Rome Jewish Catacombs – Vigna Randanini
Beneath the city streets that travellers walk on each day, dark labyrinths of underground tunnels transport travellers to a time when millions of people were buried underground.
The Jewish catacombs of Rome Vigna Randanini, which date back to the II century AD, were constructed as underground tombs by the Jewish community.
Explore with me this fascinating site, discoverd in 1859 below a private property.
All the tombs are decorated with Jewish faith subjects such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Menorah, the casket with the roll of the Torah, the fruit of the cedar, the sacred knife for circumcision, the pomegranate, the mandrake, the Shofar.
We can combine this tour with the discovery of Rome Jewish Ghetto.
