Sites you’ll visit

  • Campo de' Fiori
  • Trastevere
  • Tiber Island
  • Jewish Ghetto
  • The area of the famous flower market derives its name from being once a field of flowers, paved in 1456 under Pope Callistus III. Public executions took place in this square, which is nowadays commemorated by the impressive statue of Giordano Bruno, the Italian philosopher burnt at the stake in 1600 for heresy. The place is today very lively both during the day and by night.
  • A quant area of Rome that has seen vast changes over the centuries. This area was home to the original Jewish Synagogue of Rome and also the oldest church of the Eternal City. During 753–509 BC it was home to "Hostile Etruscans" and once overtaken, the area was largely used by local fishermen as they took advantage of the close by Tiber river. This part of Rome was even chosen by Julius Caesar as the location for his luxury Garden Villa!
  • In Rome there is always a surprise, like the amazing Tiber Island. Imagine to walk along the shores of the river of Rome and, at a certain moment, you will face a real island! You will find two original Roman bridges, that still today are linking the island with the city. The island is also home to a one thousand year old church! Mainly during the summer months, the Tiber Island is beautiful for its delicious restaurants and festivals that are organized here. A must see!
  • One of the biggest and most breathtaking monuments you'll come across while walking in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome is the majestic ruins of Octavia’s Porticus. Constructed two thousand years ago under the order of Augustus, in honor of his sister Octavia, was a monumental marble area surrounded by columns and embellished by two temples dedicated to Juno and Jupiter. The frescos that are still visible today were realized centuries later, showing us how this area was continuously used over the centuries.
