Full description
The Trastevere neighborhood offers a pleasant diversion from the heavily touristed historic center of Rome. It is largely residential, and characterized by narrow, cobbled streets, medieval-era structures, and a large university student population. As you explore Trastevere on this 3-hour tour you’ll find an impressive selection of restaurants, bars, and cafés that are frequented by locals. Explore the boutiques and studios for some unique gifts. Trastevere literally means beyond the Tiber, and it was originally connected to the main city of Rome by a tiny wooden bridge. Immigrants, mainly Jews and Syrians, arrived from the East and settled in the area. The center of public life in the neigbhorhood is the Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, a large square outside of the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the city's oldest churches and one of the most visited in Rome. Visit the site of Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, which is located near the Tiber in an area surrounded by today's Via del Portico d'Ottavia, Lungotevere dei Cenci, Via del Progresso, and Via di Santa Maria del Pianto. In Italian, the ghetto was called Serraglio delli Ebrei, which mean the enclosure of the Jews. See the Synagogue of Rome in what is today a charming area, known for its restaurants and some of the best food in Rome.

Fantastic tour!

This tour was fantastic. The history of the Jewish Ghetto was really interesting and something you wouldn't learn about otherwise as the area today is quite expensive! It was also great to walk around Trastavere and other parts of Rome and have various things pointed out and explained. Our guide (Inger) was the best guide I had in Rome. She was so enthusiastic about everything and answered all questions really well. This was one of my favourite things in Rome and well worth the money!

Very Informative and enjoyable way to see a less traveled part of Rome

Our guide was very helpful and imparted a lot of interesting inforamtion and good anecdotes. We felt we learned a lot. Out guide also gave us some suggestions of where to visit and what to eat in modern day Rome. We had good success with this tour company. We took three tours and two including this one were really worthwhile.

James was a brilliant guide; full of knowledge, wit and warmth

James was flexible; taking us to an assortment of places and knowing so much about each place. He was a pleasure to be with and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Thanks.
