Off the beaten tracks,the secret jewels of Rome
This tour will make you discover some of the secret jewels of Rome.
We'll start the tour from the Trastevere section, one of the most fascinating areas of Rome with its beautiful early Christian churches full of history. Today the area is famous for fantastic restaurant and cafes where we could have a little break to get an italian "espresso" coffee or a glass of wine. Then we'll proceed to the Tiberina island, the small island right in the middle of the Tiber river which has been so important for the foundation of Rome;we'll walk on the oldest bridge of Rome(dating back to 62b. C. ) and we'll reach the area of the jewish section so full of history since the ancient Rome time. From the Jewish section we'll move to the theatre of Marcello, one of the oldest theatres in Rome where we'll finish the tour walking by old temples and churches.

We had done the "usual" Rome tours so wanted a more in-depth tour. The history of the Jewish community within the Roman city especially during World War II was something I was interested in. Ennio offered a very comprehensive walking tour which also included two Catholic churches in the area. This was another of my interests. His experience [20 years] and fluency in English made the tour a thing of value
