When you think of Rome's history and its great empire, you can't help but think that this wonderful city is the epitome of history itself. But Rome is great and generous even within itself.
Of the old homes where thousands of Jews were isolated for centuries, almost nothing remains today. However, as you walk through the alleys of the ghetto, full of monuments, buildings, streets and in the eyes of some of the descendants of those who lived here in the past, you will find that inheritance still lives within them today.
Visit one of Rome's most fascinating neighbourhoods with us and discover the history of one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world. Walk with our guide through the alleys of the Ghetto and discover traces of Imperial Rome such as the Theatre of Marcellus or Portico of Octavia. We will retrace the history of the Jewish people in the city of Rome, from ancient to modern times, without ever forgetting the victims of the Holocaust, of which the "stumbling stones" (concrete cubes bearing a brass plate) fixed into the floor are a tangible testimony.
You will also have the chance to discover the typical recipes of traditional Jewish-Roman cuisine, such as delicious artichokes “alla giudia”, or the tart with ricotta cheese and sour cherries. During this wonderful walk you will admire the 19th century synagogue and end your visit with the sound of the water of the Renaissance turtle fountain in Piazza Mattei.
