One of the strangests place that i visited. The antmosfere of the place is just one of the kind. It is silent and depressing. The museum is well organised and it hits you hard with the exhibits.

I've learnt very valuable facts / insights from the tour guide. Each block/corner has many terrifying stories to tell - of prisoners' ordeal, dehumanizing terms of unscallable cruelty, bloody torture and human experiments. This site is a testament to the harsh truth of cruelty in...More

Never may be forgotten, the horror of what happend in this place. Everyone have to see this and listen to the stories. Our guide her grandfather was in this horrable place, so we had a real, real emotional tour from a few hours.

Then go there. It's amazing how a man can become a beast. The cruelty is a bit terrifying but since it happened you have to see for yourself.

My husband and I will be in Rome in mid-October and are interested in taking a tour of the Jewish Ghetto, Jewish Museum and Synagogue. I have been looking at various tours and many are priced beyond our budget.
