Full description

Enjoy a completely private and premium tour of the Jewish Quarter in Rome. Wander the quaint cobbled streets at your own pace, ask burning questions, and learn the history, food, and beauty of the area. Discover an ancient community rich with culture and strength.

Walk through the enchanting neighborhood of the Jewish Ghetto. Meet your private guide in the heart of Rome at the bottom of the Campidoglio steps. Find ancient structures still very much in use at the Theater of Marcellus and the Portico d'Ottavia.

Admire the brilliant mix of ancient and modernism in the quarter. Walk the central street lined with restaurants, bakeries, and shops, and pick a spot to come back and try some Kosher Italian food on your own later. Try some handmade Kosher gelato, treat of your guide, before continuing the tour.

Next, head to Piazza Mattei and see the famous Turtle Fountain. Hear the spectacular tale of its single-day construction. Wander the cobbled streets that lead to the Great Synagogue and pass by the magnificent structure that celebrates the Jews in Rome and learn its important history.

Cross the oldest bridge in Rome and arrive onto Tiber Island and learn of the Greek god Asclepius who came to Rome and landed on the island. Ask your guide for tips and suggestions for food and lifestyle in the Eternal City, and venture out on your own.
