Discover the real Rome and learn about the history of the Jewish Ghetto on our three-hour walking tour. After you have seen the Colosseum and the Vatican, take a break from the crowds, escape the traffic and explore the backstreets of the historic center that most tourists do not even know exist.
Join us on a leisurely stroll through the Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere area different from the heavily touristed historic center of Rome, starting from Largo Argentina and the Senate House where Julius Caesar was murdered, then across Tiber Island to Campo de' Fiori, once the site of executions during the Inquisition, today, one of the city's most lively piazzas.
On this tour you will get a chance to see the hidden ancient city below the modern street level and medieval-era structures and as Rome was not built in a day, a little bit of every time period in between, from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque.
Trastevere means beyond the Tiber, and it was originally connected to the historical center of Rome by a tiny wooden bridge. Mainly Jews and Syrians immigrated from the East and settled in the area.
The Trastevere and the Synagogue area are famous for its restaurants and some of the best food in Rome.
