We enjoyed both the ghetto tour with Mikol and the Vatican tour with Marco. I loved Mikol’s stories about growing up in the Jewish community, and it was so interesting to see the place where her father’s family hid during the war. I would have liked a bit more time to explore the Jewish museum. Maybe we should have arrived... More

Our tour guide of the Jewish Ghetto was fabulous,-It was great to learn and see the vestiges of Jewish life in Rome from one of its current natives. Our guide was knowledgeable professional, fun. She spoke an excellent English which was critical. It was definitely one of the highlights of our stay. We will recommend this group to our friends

Sara, our amazing tour guide, led on an a fact-filled tour of the former Jewish ghetto and museum. She had a wealth of information on the challenges of life in the ghetto and what makes the Jewish community of Rome so special. The stunning shul is a must-see! This tour is better for adults (our kids didn't love it but... More

We did two tours with Jewish Roma, the Vatican tour on the afternoon of the day of arrival, and the Selections of Rome tour the next day, both with Silvia as our guide. The tours were absolutely fabulous, so much more history and information they the vast majority of this kind of tour! The Jewish perspective was particularly great, even... More

A friend mentioned that her tour of the Jewish Ghetto in Rome was her favourite experience of her trip, so I decided to book one as well. I found this tour company online, and as it was well marketed, I booked in. I am so glad I did as the tour was fantastic and well worth the cost. I am... More

My wife and I booked 3 separate tours. The Vatican Tour and the Ancient Rome Tour with Silvia, who was extremely knowledgable and friendly. She brought Roman history to life. The Ghetto tour with Yael was amazing. So much so, that my wife who is not a regular shule goer (although we are orthodox) felt overwhelmingly compelled to attend services... More

Felicia was an incredible tour guide. She knew the history, the dates, the facts and the information about the Vatican, Vatican City and general Roman and Italian history. She walked us through the Vatican giving us a unique Jewish perspective, especially of Michelangelo's work in the sistine chapel. I had a general idea of the history but Felicia took it... More

Eithan is an impressive 22 year old young man who passionately told his own family's story to our family of five. He was knowledgeable, patient and interesting. Very kid-friendly and accomodating. Made our trip to Rome.

We loved our walking tour of the Jewish ghetto, museum, and synagogue with Sara. She was knowledgeable about the history of the Jews in Rome and of the ghetto itself, and since her family is from the ghetto, Sara put a personal spin on the tour. Our group was small -just another family and us- which was perfect for an... More

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.
