Full description
Join a 3-hour walking tour to discover Rome's former Jewish ghetto and the historic Trastevere neighborhood, two areas that are often overlooked by tourists. Walking around these neighborhoods will be the best way to see all their main monuments and landmarks and to get a feel for each neighbourhood's distinctive vibe. First, discover Rome's Jewish ghetto, established in 1555 by Pope Paul IV for the 5,000 Jews that lived in Rome at the time. The former walled quarter sits close to the river Tiber, and today, is one of the most fascinating quarters of the city. Led by an experienced guide, you'll see Jewish-owned businesses, and pass by kosher restaurants. The Porticus Octaviae will be one of the most recognized landmarks in the ghetto, which sits in the middle of Piazza Mattei.  Your guide will then take you across the river Tiber to Trastevere, which was once home to the wealthy Etruscans. Trastevere is a picturesque neighborhood dating back to medieval times, filled with narrow winding streets, alleyways and pedestrian squares. Here, you will visit some of Rome’s most important churches, including Santa Cecilia, the Basilica of Santa Maria and San Francesco a Ripa and the Ponte Rotto, which is the oldest stone bridge in all of Rome.
