The real heart of Rome


This is an off the beaten path tour, which is perfect to get to know the heart of the Eternal City.
Trastevere is the oldest neighbourhood of Rome and the Jewish Ghetto is not only old but so important from a historical and architectural point of you.

The walking tour will start from Ponte Sisto, we will walk through the neighbourhood of Trastevere, stopping by the most famous churches and then we will cross the river and go to the Jewish Ghetto, admiring the oldest bridge of Rome, Ponte Rotto, so wonderfully pictured in many old paintings of Rome in 1800.
We will explore the Jewish Ghetto and the Synagogue of Rome with the Jewish Museum.

We will them keep walking to the church of San Crisogno and visit the catacombs there. After that, we will visit St. Cecilia Church to admire mosaics of Pietro Cavallini and the first marvellous baroque sculpture in the church by Modern.
We will cross the bridge, stop to admire the oldest bridge of Rome, Ponte Rotto, the Tiberina Island and then we will arrive at the Jewish ghetto on the other side of the Tiber river.

A Recent Review of this tour

Monica was an incredibly informative and enthusiastic guide, and I learned an enormous amount from her. She has a wealth of information about the long and complex history of Rome, and was able to communicate her knowledge clearly. Her English is totally fluent. In addition to providing me with an excellent individual tour, Monica sent me some photos and a detailed itinerary of what we had seen and done once the tour was completed. I highly recommend Monica as a tour guide.
