We had only a short time in Rome at the end of a cruise. To make the best use of our time we contacted Jewish Roma. Their guides and choice of sites are excellent. You do not have to be Jewish to benefit from Jewish Roma's tours. They present a part of Rome's history in depth that would otherwise be... More

We were thrilled with our tour of the Ghetto and Jewish Museum. Micaela was a pleasure. She shared information about the Jewish community past and present. We visited a bakery and tasted a traditional pastry as part of the tour. On our own, after the tour, we stayed and enjoyed a Roman Jewish lunch at an area restaurant. We also... More

In August my wife Michelle and I took The Ghetto and Jewish Museum tour. It was both very informative and very moving. Our guide was Sara and she was simply excellent. She gave us the history of the ghetto while providing personal (her family's history) anecdotes that made the experience more real and more relevant. We cannot recommend this tour... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of touring Jewish Rome with Jewish Roma Private Walking Tours on November 4, 2016. Micol was an excellent guide with a long, close and personal connection to the Piazza, as the area is called by the local community. Since we toured on Friday morning, we had the extra bonus of being able to... More

Vatican tour- our guide Marco Misano was very knowledgeable and professional. Unfortunately the crowds were so great that we had only less than 15 minutes in the Sistine Chapel. From the e-mail correspondence we understood that our tour was to be private with four people and the price would be reduced if more joined. The group was increased to eight... More

This was a very expensive tour and having had lots of email correspondence with the company, I was promised a small group at a discounted price. However, this actually turned into a large group of 12 which for the price we paid I could have had my own private tour guide for just my family for the whole day!!! Now... More

we took the Jewish Vartcan tour. Marco Misano was a fabulous and informative guide. The problem is that we were promised a tour with my group of four and if a few joined us, it would cost less. NOT SO. We ended up with 10 people in all, and charged for a private tour. It left us feeling ripped off... More

We had a fabulous tour of the Jewish ghetto with Micol. She was extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher. Happened to visit on a Jewish holiday when the synagogue and museum were closed, but Micol thought to bring the museum catalog with her so she was able to tell us about much of the collection. Hearing about her family's Roman... More

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
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.
