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, including the two main Synagogues – Ashkenaz and Sephardi; the highlights of this tour will be a private visit of the Jewish museum and the synagogues led by our Jewish guide who is also a member of the Roman Jewish Community.

A stop in the Jewish bakery is a must and will make your trip to Rome unforgettable.
Today you will listen about 22 centuries of Jewish Roman history, which will be shared with knowledge, humor and passion.

The 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 the city of Christianity. Jews are the most authentic Roman citizens and in Rome you will see more Jewish sites than you could ever imagine.

Roman Jews have even preserved their own dialect the Giudeo-romanesco with its 16th century dialectical forms and a free use of “romanized” Hebrew words!
