A wonderful area of town to just wander through and soak up the experience of Rome! Known as the Jewish Quarter or Jewish Ghetto, due to its historical roots. Apparently very expensive to live here.

As many others, I enjoyed the sultry tones of Rick Steves as I strolled through the ghetto. Very interesting history to the area and would be missing out on it by not having a guide/audiotour. Didn't go into the museum. Interesting history to the area...More

These streets make up a neighborhood with its own personality and special history. Located in the heart of Rome, one of the quietest and central streets of the city. The Jewish culture and trace, still present, fortunately.

This is a great area to walk around and take in the sites. Make sure to look at the floor and look for the gold plaques on the floor showing where victims of the Nazis used to live. The synagogue from outside was beautiful as...More

Any guidebook, tour guide or real Roman will tell you that the Ghetto is as Roman as Rome can get! Only a little maze of few streets between the Tiber and Largo Argentina/Piazza Venezia this area has it all. It is so central and yet...More

Cannot remember the name of the restaraunt we went to but this area is so off the beaten tourist tack. Lovely buildings and little snickers to look into. The main Piazza has lovely places to eat and not all kosher. If you can squeeze in...More
