Full description
On this 2-hour Jewish Ghetto Art and Treasure Hunt you’ll take a journey to the heart of ancient and medieval Rome. Start your hunt at Piazza Mattei, where you’ll see its graceful turtles, witnesses of a romantic love story. From here you’ll head along narrow alleyways leading to the Portico of Ottavia, where you’ll be enticed by the aromas of kosher food. During your walk along Via del Portico di Ottavia you’ll encounter a lizard and a frog. These animals, seemingly insignificant, are in fact the way 2 enslaved architects found to sign their own work. Finally, you’ll walk along the Tiber River, where the ancient Roman legend of Asclepius and the snake will reveal the reason why the Tiber Island has its unique shape. Watch the clues closely, find your orientation, follow the tracked indicators on the map in your book, and search carefully around you.

Alternativo è meglio

La guida è stata davvero fantastica, ci ha incitati e coinvolti tutto il tempo della visita in un gioco-apprendimento adatto a chiunque. È davvero un'ottima iniziativa quella di studiare storia e arte in maniera così non convenzionale ed attiva. Personalmente penso che parteciperò anche ai prossimi tour.
