Decided to embrace the Roman culture, and booked tickets to take in Concerti Del Tempietto, with saxophonist Isabella stability and pianoforte Carmelo Luca Sambataro. A superb performance that we enjoyed, and lasted for 2 hours.

An ancient theatre near Capitoline. Both, Caesa and Augustus were said to be involved in its construction. Looks a bit like Colosseum. I did not visit from inside.

Things like this are what make Rome so unique. We visit and we are impressed by the ancient buildings. The today’s Romans just go home at night to an apartment built in a ruin.

This is the remains of a Roman Theatre not that far from the Capitolline Museums. They incorporated the remains into a more modern building like in many other places in Rome. Definitely worth a walk thru.

Every year, on summer nights, there are beaufitil and touching musical presentations, from piano to string quartets. It is something not to miss. Before the presentations there is poetry reading - Good opportunity to practise your Italian!

Julius Caesar cleared the space for it; and Augustus erected it. There have been times in history when actual rulers were deeply interested in arts, in this case drama, and not just power and money. What remains of the theatre is beautiful and makes you wish you could picture in detail what went on inside and outside, what the actors... More

I skipped the colloseum and foro romano then went to ghetto neighbourhood as some of the reviewer said this place was worth to visit. Indeed, it is so much worth to visit! I was the only one who was there. So I could pay attention to every details I want and take as many as photos as I want.

we stumbled over this attraction on our way back from the Colosseum. But still it was free of charge and you can admire the structures and have a stroll through it all. You can see the resemblance of the Colosseum, and if we weren't filled to the brim with cultural inputs I'm sure it would be even better. I would... More

All over the city are buildings that used original Roman buildings as foundations and this is no exception. The lower levels are a mini Colosseum but a developer obviously decided that there was room for accommodation on top so he added apartments in the 1600's. It just looks odd but at least the Roman remnants have been preserved.

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
Ghetto
The mini-neigborhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighborhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
