We booked this trip through Grayline tours. Our guide, Davide B., was exceptional. His superb knowledge of all the aspects of the Vatican and Basilica helped my wife and I learn so much history. Would highly recommend Davide as a guide.

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
