An intense tour to discover one of the most beautiful hidden trasures of the City


I will take you to discover the world's oldest Jewish ghetto. We will visit this small neighborhood delimited by the Tiber river on one side and Venice Square on the other side. The quarter was enclosed within the walls in 1555 under Pope Paul IV who revoked all rights granted to the Roman Jews. Visiting this area is a really strong cultural and religious experience, due also to the Synagoghe and the Jewish museum.
