What to Expect
Escape the crowds of Rome’s city center on a walking tour of the former Jewish Ghetto. Meet your guide at the fountain opposite the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, and explore a little gem in the heart of the city.

Learn more about one of Europe’s oldest Jewish ghettos in what is now a beloved area of Rome. Admire the splendid Basilica of St. Mary in Trastevere, then stroll down beautiful alleys to reach Isola Tiberina. Cross the Ponte Fabricio (Rome’s oldest bridge) to enter the streets that made up the Ghetto.

Learn about life in the Ghetto and the crushing poverty, severe restrictions, and unskilled jobs - such as ragmen, secondhand dealers, or fish mongers - that the Jewish community had to endure. See alleys that survived the restoration of the area, and admire the gorgeous Fountain of Turtles by Giacomo della Porta.

Discover 20th-century buildings lying side-by-side with medieval ones. Go to the fascinating archaeological area of Porticus Octaviae to see the remains of an ancient Roman building. Next, visit the Synagogue of Rome, built after Italy's unification in 1870, when the Jews were given Italian citizenship.

The tour ends at the Synagogue so that you can go inside if you want (at your own expense), depending on the Synagogues’ opening times. Entrance includes a 45-minute to 1-hour tour.
