What to expect

Your tour will start at Ponte Sisto bridge, built in the 15th century during the mandate of Pope Sixtus IV, and will proceed through the picturesque Trastevere district. Walking around this colorful area, full of narrow streets and quaint piazzas, you'll reach Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the very heart of the area. Passing by the Tiber Island you'll head to the nearby Jewish Ghetto, where the Jews lived for about 315 years. While people mainly identify Italy with Catholicism, Rome has been the first city that Jews reached when migrating to the Western World. Get in touch with the past and the present-day life of one of the biggest Jewish communities in Europe and find out how the Jewish culture influenced many aspects of everyday life in the Eternal city. Conclude your tour inside the Great Synagogue, where you'll visit the Jewish Museum of Rome. The museum, which reopened in 2005, is made up of 7 areas displaying magnificent artifacts and precious documents, witnessing the 2000-year-old history of Jews in Rome.
