We just enjoyed an unbelievable VIRTUAL TOUR of Jewish Roma with Micaela. Not only is she charming, but moreover she is also extremely knowledgeable about history, Roman and Jewish and their intersections through the millennia. Additionally, her personal anecdotes regarding her specific experiences and generations of her family's experiences interwoven during the tour, afforded the 80 attendees from our synagogue a special vantage point from which we could truly learn and visualize the plight, successes, motivations and challenges of the Roman Jewish communities. Micaela is a treasure - if you have the opportunity to physically visit Rome and want to see it from the Jewish perspective [as we did a few years ago] - ONLY tour with Micaela. In the interim - try to get your community to engage with her for a 'virtual' tour - you will surely be enriched!

Virtual tour of jewish Rome with Mcaela Pavoncello felt like an in-person, one-on-one tour. Her information - far from seeming canned- was what I'd hope for from a knowledgeable friend. it was both personal and professional, lending an immediacy to the history. I forgot that we were on Zoom. I loved it.

I just took the Zoom tour and it was fantastic! Michaela is so animated, warm, knowledgeable that I would happily take the same tour tomorrow. Thank you for sharing the many touching stories and thanks also to Jewish Majorca team for organising the week of tours and celebration. Nigel

I just finished a zoom Jewish walking tour with Micaela which was beyond wonderful. Her enthusiasm comes through the screen! You are entertained and enthralled as you learn so much information. I can’t wait until we can take a tour with her in person in Rome

... and you haven't visited the Jewish Ghetto without having Micaela Pavoncello as your guide at least once. ;-) By end of recent September until early October 2020, during the week before Sukkot, I took advantage of the opportunity to combine both business and sightseeing purposes at a long awaited trip to Rome. Next to the "usual suspects" among the popular Roman sights, of course, it was one of my lomg term wishes ever, to visit also the Jewish Ghetto of Rome once, in order to learn more about it's special history during the centuries,. While searching Tripadvisor and the Internet for a good local guide, I ended up sending a booking request to Micaela Pavoncello, who is a member of the Jewish Community of Rome (and BTW kind of famous, as I found out later, her having co-authored the Jewish Ghetto part of Rick Steves audio guide, and did a great job with that, too). It turned out, that I couldn't have found a more friendly, knowledgable guide, full of energy, and with the right sense of humor. After visiting the impressive Great Synagoge and the Jewish Museum, containing a hoard of interesting exhibits about Jewish life and culture, Micaela showed me around "her" quarter, where almost everyone seemed to be happy to see her and to offer greating or exchanging a few words. The Jewish Ghetto is a small place by meters, but so rich by history, and so many stories and facts were provided by Micaela. I will never forget the tripping stones integrated in the pavement in front of several houses, helping to remember the names of victims of the Nazi terror, who once used to live here, before deportation. Don't miss also a quick visit at Kiryat Sefer book store, where I could find some interesting books about this dark chapter of history, but also a beautifully illustrated book about the Great Synagogue. But last but not least, visiting the Jewish Ghetto is not just about the past, but also about the present by getting a glimpse of the nowadays vibrant life in one of THE in-quarters of Rome. And it is also about the future, being a heaven for foodies, in order to prevent from starving. The Pizza place, where Micaela brought me to, and was kind enough to share some pieces with me, had to offer one of the best pizzas in Rome I have ever eaten - and that means a lot in Rome! Thank you Micaela, for introducing me to "your" quarter. And thank you for doing it the way you did it, making the few hours unforgettable, and hoping for future visits to come ASAP.
