Jewish Ghetto and Synagogue walking tour
- Discover one of Rome's most unique neighborhoods, the Jewish quarter
- Visit the Great Synagogue, a symbol of the emancipation achieved by Roman Jews after the abolition of the ghetto
- Get an insight on what Roman Jewish heritage and culture is all about, thanks to your local guide, born and bred in the heart of the Jewish community
Join a guided walking tour of one of Rome's most interesting neighborhoods, the Jewish quarter.
Listen to your guide as they explain how it was established on the banks of the Tiber River as a prison-neighborhood within Rome, surrounded by fences and gates, as it was considered unacceptable for Jews to live together with Christians.
The community remained marginalized for centuries and only in 1848 the dismantling of the doors and walls of the Jewish ghetto was ordered, even though the laws restricting Jews remained in force until 1870. Walking the streets you'll realize how the former ghetto quarter represents the uninterrupted relationship between the Jewish community and the city of Rome and why they chose it to be the home of its Great Synagogue, a symbol of the emancipation achieved by Roman Jews after the abolition of the ghetto.
Getting to know this historic area of the city and visiting this stunning religious site is an unforgettable experience: thanks to the anecdotes and knowledge of tradition of your native local guide, born and bred in the heart of the Jewish-Roman community, you'll get an insight on what their culture and heritage are all about.
