Jewish Ghetto walking tour

One of the best and least-known attractions of Rome is the Jewish Ghetto area of the city. Established in 1555 in the Rione Sant’Angelo near the Tiber River, various discriminatory laws (such as professions Jews could take up such as selling fish) ruled the Jewish Ghetto. Even through this, Jewish culture thrived and was an integral part of shaping the culture of the city. The Ghetto also saw mass deportation of Jews and suffered atrocities during the Nazi occupation of WWII. It rebuilt itself after the war and the parts of the neighborhood that you can enjoy today are testament to the enduring strength and struggles of its people.

With a professional guide, visit attractions like the Teatro Marcello – also called the Jewish Colosseum for its resemblance to the original Colosseum – where artistic performances were once held. Today, the top floors are inhabited by some of the oldest Jewish families in Rome. You’ll see the exteriors of the Great Synagogue which is the largest synagogue in Rome and was built in 1901 after the Italian Unification. Pass by the Fountain of the Turtles – a late Renaissance-inspired structure – and the ruins of the ancient Portico d’Ottavia which rises from under 20-feet below street level. Gastronomically, you'll also have the chance to savor traditional Jewish-Roman cuisine like delicious artichokes or tarts made with ricotta cheese and sour cherries.
