If I am going to go on a private tour, the question I ask is "did I learn or experience something that I couldn't have done on my own?" The answer here is yes, absolutely yes. From Sara, the tour guide, I learned not only the history of the Jews in Rome, example, Jews have lived in Rome since the... More

I am adding my voice to the chorus in favor of doing this tour. Yes, it is expensive and yes, I considered skipping it. In the end, I preferred to chance overspending rather than miss out on a rare opportunity. Who knows when I will return to Rome? It was the right choice. My daughter and I had a private... More

It was a pleasure arranging our tour with Jewish Roma Tours. Our guide Sara was a very personable, enthusiastic young woman with a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Jews in Rome and Jewish life now. She incorporated some personal stories as well which made it even more interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and recommend this company... More

We heard Rick Steves talk about this tour and some friends of ours recommended it to us so we included it in our plans. I dealt with Giorgia in booking and she even was able to arrange our transfer from the Cruise ship port to our hotel so we could get to the tour without wasting a half day.Very helpful.... More

My husband and I loved our tour of the Jewish ghetto with Sara. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and an excellent teacher. As a Roman Jew, she also provided us with amazing insight into the Roman Jewish community both past and present.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of the Jewish ghetto with Sara Pavoncello! She is a passionate and enthusiastic young woman who gave us great insight into life in the ghetto in the past and today. Her grandparents are some of the oldest residents of this tight knit community and she provided many personal stories of life there during the... More

Michaela is a gem. Seeing her Jewish Rome made me not only proud to be a Jew but honored to be in her presence. She is beyond knowledgable and so passionate about all things Jewish and Roman! If you go to Rome, do not miss this once in a lifetime experience to meet her and tour the Jewish quarter!

The first piece of information that our tour guide, Sara Pavoncello told us is that we will not see the ghetto. As she saw our shock, she explained that the so called "ghetto" is now a trendy and upscale neighborhood in Rome. Her grandfather is one of the oldest resident in this area. Throughout the tour, Ms. Pavoncello gave us... More

Back home now but a smile comes to my face when thinking about the day recently spent with Micol. She was charming, intelligent, informed and so very warm. An absolute pleasure to spend time with. We explored the Jewish ghetto as well as the synagogue . She shared personal family history as Roman Jews which gave us a new insight... More

We very much enjoyed our Jewish Roma Walking Tour with Sara Pavoncello. Sara was a delight to be with and a font of knowledge about the Roman Jewish community and the terrible pain inflicted on it during the war. She melded the past and the present in a very personal way that made the Roman Jewish experience all the more... More
