• Jewish District Guided Tour •
A Jewish District walking tour is for whoever wants to truly understand the essence of Rome. Follow our local, licensed, Roman guides to explore and experience the eternal city, not just see it.
Are you looking for something a little different from the usual monuments or museums? Do you want to walk the road less travelled and not just the usual tourist paths? Come with us and take a walk through the true heart of Rome. Come see street artisans, narrow cobbled lanes, medieval towers built over Roman ruins, breathtaking views of the Tiber river – enjoy all these sites, sounds and flavours of the city on this single tour.
This is a full immersion walking tour through an amazing cultural and historical melting pot, where Pagan cults, Christian and Jewish traditions are joined in one of the most original districts of the world.
Do you want to taste kosher food (bakery and cakes) and Roman specialities on the same street… then don’t not miss our Jewish District Guided Tour!
The first Jewish community was established in Rome more than 2000 years ago. From then on Christianity and Judaism have lived side by side, mostly in harmony…but not always: the sad crumbling remains of the walled district known as “Ghetto” (where the Roman Jews were forced to live between 1500s and 1800s) were torn down only in the 19th century. You will go throught the history of the community leaded by your guide, discovering how they lived, how many re still there, how the ghetto used to be five hundreds years ago and you will also understand how it changed until today.
Having been theathre of the persecution until the 16 october 1943, the place is a monument to the memory of the jewish community in Rome and deserves a indepth exploration.
If you wish to add some food tasting on the way, let us know, we know where to find the best “pizza ebraica” and “carcifofi alla giudia”. Want to know what they are? Book the tour and you’ll…EAT!
