I organized the virtual Roma presentation for our synagogue. I am so glad I did, and recommend this program for any other congregation looking for an unusual and interesting program. Even with Covid restrictions lifting, I think doing this virtual program would be worthwhile. The program itself was wonderful, Micaela was a delight to work with, and the logistics of putting it all together were astonishingly easy.

Micaela's energy and enthusiasm is infectious. She is also extremely knowledgeable, which was especially noticeable during the question and answer period. The pacing and clarity of the presentation showcase her skill as a tour guide, and her inviting manner made me feel like we were friends visiting a newly found relative, not strangers on a tour.. I have been in Rome before, but I saw and learned so much from Micaela's presentation that it was like I was visiting for the first time. The only thing I might have changed was to have fewer photographs of famous tourists, and to add in a short video clip of the current day ghetto area to supplement the still photos. Overall, this was a wonderful experience for our synagogue, and I highly recommend it.

I took a virtual tour with Micaela and was amazed with her tour. I've worked in tourism for 4 years and seen hundreds of tour guides and have loved few as much as Micaela. She was hilarious, super well informed and conveyed the information well, and added just the right amount of personal to make her tour feel like you were with a friend, which is a huge feat for an hour long zoom tour. I can't wait to visit Rome and tour with her in person.

Saturday April 17th 2021 I took part to a guided tour around Rome’s Jewish neighborhood (commonly said “Ghetto”, but Jewish people prefer to call it “Piazza”) lead by Micaela Pavoncello.
The tour was sold out since a month and half, when I finally got my place.
Micaela narrates the Rome Jewish people story from their arrival in Rome in 139 B.C. to modern times.
Her voice expresses passion and personal involvement as only a Jewish community member can do.
Whatever you think about Jewish people history, choices and personality, go to hear their bi-millennial history in Rome from a passionate guide belonging to their community.

Micaela blew me and my group away with her charming, funny, eloquent and fascinating overview of the Jewish history of Rome. It's not easy to give a tour virtually, but here in the Quarantimes Micaela has painstakingly crafted a beautiful and informative experience replete with pictures both famous and personal. She gives an inside glimpse into Jewish life past and present in Rome, local Jews' complicated historical relationship with Italy and its Catholic hegemony, and the unique experience of Roman Jews during the Holocaust... plus quirky bits about culture, tourism and food. Highly recommended!

Micaela took my group of 29 individuals on an incredible virtual journey through the history of Jewish Rome! She was funny, very well educated, spoke incredible English, and was engaging. This tour was a program put on by Jewish Federation of Atlantic & Cape May Counties for its NextGen group. We met on Zoom for about 75 minutes and learned about the past and present. Feedback after the program ended was instantaneous and overwhelmingly enthusiastic. We were surprised to learn how unique the Jewish population of Rome is and were inspired to visit the city to eat artichokes with Micaela someday soon!

Micaela is an amazing tour guide. She is a master storyteller. She captivated me and our entire group for several hours, taking us through the old synagogue and through the Jewish ghetto. She is engaging and funny and managed to impart lots of information during the tour I would recommend her tour to anyone with an interest in learning about the history of Jews in Rome.

Micaela and Daniella gave us amazing tours of the Jewish ghetto and central Rome! They are both so personable, energetic, knowledgeable and they care about sharing their authentic perspective on Jewish history in Rome. Micaela was so helpful in responding to texts and helping us plan our tours, and accommodating our schedule and requests. She really cares about what she does and it shows! Seeing the Jewish ghetto through her stories was a highlight of our trip and a must, especially for Jewish travelers.

Micaela is an amazing tour guide who gave my wife and I an unforgettable experience at the Vatican. We were lucky enough to have a private tour with her. She took her time and explained all that there was to see during our visit. We had a relaxed and entertaining time during our visit and we highly recommend using her.

Last Sunday I took a wonderful virtual version of Michaela's tour of Jewish Rome. Michaela was knowledgeable, informative, charming, funny, and quite comprehensive. I'm only sorry I did not know about her when I visited Rome in the past. She presented the history of the Jews of Rome, who date back to the time of the Maccabees. She presented a history of the ghetto period, the building of the Great Synagogue, and the renewal of the former ghetto after the Great Synagogue was built. It included a virtual tour of the synagogue and a picture of Jewish life in and around Rome today. I expect her walking tours even exceed the virtual tour and, now that COVID is starting to recede, should be accessible once again.

Having spent over three weeks touring through Italy, this tour was the best experience we had. Micaela blended her extensive knowledge of of the old Jewish ghetto with personal experiences and just the right amount of humor. I truly appreciated the small size of the group and her ability to inform and make the experience truly enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour.
