Today, very little remains of the ancient buildings where thousands of Jews were isolated for centuries; nevertheless, walking through the streets of the ghetto of Rome, with its monuments and buildings, and looking into the eyes of some of the descendants of those who lived here in the past, you will discover the legacy that has been preserved to this day.
The Roman Jewish community is one of the oldest in the world and thanks to this tour you can discover its history through the traces left over the centuries. From the imperial era, as witnessed by buildings such as the Theatre of Marcellus and the Portico of Octavia, to more recent times, not forgetting the victims of the Holocaust who are remembered by the many "stumbling stones" in the street.
During the tour you will be able to admire the Synagogue, which dates back to the 19th century, from the outside, and you will have the opportunity to taste some typical Roman Jewish recipes, including the famous Carciofi alla Giudia.
The tour will end in Piazza Mattei, at the Fountain of the Turtles, built during the Renaissance.
