This is one of the greatest collections of Judaica in the world and is laid out very nicely. Even if you are not Jewish, you will get a GREAT understanding of the Jewish culture. There are recorded tours and guided tours. It's also worth paying for a guide to see the Great Synagogue. We loved this. We went with Rome... More

The synagogue is very lavish and beautiful. The young guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The museum has great artifacts on display. Well worth a visit.

The Jewish ghetto, the famous synagogue and the Jewish museum are all in one area. The museum shows a full history of Jewish life in Rome. We found this visit very interesting.

For hundreds of years the Jewish population in Rome flourished, until World War Two and as a result of that horrible time in history, the number of Jewish people living in Rome has dwindled to about 13,000. The Jewish Ghetto is more of a tourist attraction than an actual community and the Great Synagogue, which has been preserved as a... More

My husband and I just returned from an amazing trip to Italy. While in Rome, we took a tour of the Jewish Ghetto, which included visiting the Jewish Museum and the Great Synagogue of Rome. Our tour guide "Sara" was amazing, and in three hours conveyed to us her passion and intelligence as she spoke about the multiple thousands of... More

The Jewish Museum of Rome is quite interesting and informative, presented very compactly in a modest space. What it does show is a variety of exhibits and creativity that are vibrant. The climax of the tour, however, is The Great Synagogue, which is simply magnificent. To add to my pleasure, the tour guide was simply charming and extremely knowledgeable. For... More

The beautiful synagogue of Rome is very impressive from outside and also inside. There is a guided visit to the two synagogues in the site as well as the very interesting exhibitions of the history of Jews living in Italy for twenty-two centuries. A very nice collection of Torah covers with embroidery is shown at the first room. Also it... More

Although it's as expensive as any other touristic attraction in Rome, the place is worth visiting. Please don't be put off by security at the entrance - they have to their job since the terrorist attack happened by the Synagogue years back. If you are really keen on learning about Judaism, and especially if that's your first experience, take your... More
