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

Great tour! Found it very interesting and our tour guide, Sarah, added a personal touch telling us about her own history in this area. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend taking this tour when in Rome.

Micol was amazing on our tour of the Jewish Ghetto. Elana was terrific as our guide for the walking tour of Ancient Rome. I would highly recommend them both to anyone wanting to learn about the Jewish Ghetto in Rome and Ancient Rome. They were both very informative and they worked very well with our group of 11 (5 adults... More

I would like to think that there are other agencies offering Jewish ghetto tours at more reasonable prices and additionally have better business skills. We have taken Jewish tours all over the world and we had the most problems booking with this agency. They would not commit to times or prices and waited until the last moments to confirm the...

My husband and I recently took two tours through this company and both were fabulous. We took the walking of the Jewish ghetto and the Jewish vatican tour. Both tour guides were interesting and a delight to be with and we would highly recommend including these tours in your visit to Rome.

My husband and I took this tour in early July. We booked it well in advance. The tour was easy to book and the communication from the company was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was very informative! It was a small group tour which was perfect for the information given. We would highly recommend this tour.

Well worth it for Jewish visitors, especially those looking for the kosher food stops. Micaela was our tour guide and she was fabulous. The synagogue, the memorials, the shops/restaurants -- the blend of old and new -- it meant a great deal to visit. This was our honeymoon but we knew visiting had to be a priority.

The Jewish Ghetto tour with Sara was the highlight of our 3 day trip in Rome. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable. We learned a great deal about the history of the Jewish Romans and Sara's passion and knowledge added a powerful spirit to the experience. We were also fortunate to meet members of Sara's family who are integral to the... 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.
