We been to Rome few times and enjoyed guided tours. However, this time we wanted to learn more about Jewish Rome. Originally we asked to join Michaela. However, a day before our tour she became ill and we got Sara instead. It was a fantastic Lou informative one at that. Sara is 8 generation local Italian Jewish young lady. She... More

My husband and I just had the pleasure of taking 2 tours, the Vatican and the Ghetto Tours, with Jewish Roma. We found setting up the tours and dealing with their home office easy and we found the tours themselves outstanding. In both cases we were paired with other adults, so the tours were "group" experiences. Both tour guides, Michaela... More

Our tour guide had a personal history with the Jewish Ghetto and we appreciated that she shared it. My husband and I would highly recommend this tour!

Jewish Roma's catacombs tour cost 285 euros plus the expense of the cab rides there and back---and was worth every single penny (or whatever else you call it in Euros). There are five Jewish catacombs in the Rome area, but only one is safely accessible. Our guide Sara was knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic, as befitting someone whose family has been...

We had an excellent experience all around with our recent Jewish Roma tour. The staff was great to work with in booking our trip and our tour guide (Yael) was outstanding. It really was a highlight of our trip to Rome - she took us through the museum at our pace and then we walked through the ghetto where she... More

Without sounding too much like a parent, this was an important visit and tour for two of my young adult kids. Yes, they study history in school, but the lack of depth and the skewed focus they hear is not enough for an objective opinion. Our guide was extremely well educated and more importantly, her family had been living in... More

2 1/2 tour of the ghetto and Michol Piazza was amazing. We learned the ancient and modern history of the Romans Jews. Michol made the tour so interesting and relevant. The entire group loved every minute of it!

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

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.
