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

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

Thank you Sara Pavoncello for leading a great tour of the Synagogue and Jewish Quarter. It was a very busy and crowded day that was made even more hectic by the presence of a large wedding in the Synagogue. You handled it all with grace and wit and still managed to give us a clear view of Jewish life in... More

My husband and I and are friends booked two tours with Michaela in early September 2014 while we were in Rome. The first was a tour of the Jewish Ghetto. Michaela herself was our guide and she was absolutely fantastic. She is a vibrant, passionate young woman and was able to add her own perspectives as a Jewish Roman, telling... More

Thank you Sara for proving such wonderful insights about the history of the Jews in Rome and the Jewish Ghetto. Your family stories created such vivid imagery for us. We not only learned of the horrible events and conditions the many families faced...we learned about the close Jewish Community of the today. Getting to meet your family members as we... More

However, this tour was great. It lasted for almost four hours and the kids stayed interested and engaged almost the... More
