Sites you’ll visit

  • Trastevere
  • Jewish Ghetto
  • 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!
  • 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.

Tour description

Start your tour to discover the Jewish Quarter of Rome by admiring the breathtaking view from the Janiculum Hill. Marvel at the impressive Fontana dell’Acqua Paola, also known as il Fontanone, one of the most beautiful fountains in Rome, dating from the 17th century. Just as ancient explorers, we’ll descend the hill into the heart of Trastevere. Stroll through suggestive narrow alleys lined with historical workshops, bakeries and typical inns. Your tour guide will be your storyteller, and you will discover that Rome is not just about gladiators and Christian history– it’s also a city inhabited by the Jewish community and has been influenced by their traditions for over 2,000 years.

Cross the pedestrian bridge of Ponte Sisto, and reach the Jewish Ghetto (the Jewish Quarter of Rome), which is one of the most beautiful areas in the city, full of history and tradition, that has almost entirely remained untouched throughout the centuries. The 1904 Synagogue, the centerpiece of this area, is a magnificent structure with beautiful windows and decorative facade. Walk through narrow cobblestone streets, experiencing several layers of history, learn the history of the Jewish community, while you admire the ancient ruins that surround you.
