This historical Jewish Ghetto dates back to 1555, when Pope Paul IV restricted all Jews to a small area of the city, which was then walled in. Today, the ghetto has wonderful eating places with cross-cultural dishes, and a beautiful synagogue with a small museum inside.

I really enjoyed visiting this part of Rome and especially the forum/rotunda/theatre excavation. These are lesser known ruins so not as heavily visited. I was happy to just wander in and explore on my own. I was glad not to be part of a tour...More

Beautiful location in the heart of the historic Jewish Ghetto. The guided tour of the synagogue was very informative and the building was of great interest. However, the museum and the walking tour of the Ghetto was outstanding.

The Jewish Ghetto is no longer a Ghetto. The walls were removed centuries ago. The Synagogue has a wonder museum inside and has free tours. It is beautiful. Our tour of Rome has to include a visit to the Jewish ghetto. It is a fairly...More

This was the second time I have done this tour. It was equally fascinating, informative and moving as the first time. Our guide was Sara Terracina and it was amazing to hear her stories delivered in her perfect English. I cannot recommend this tour highly...More

There's a lot of history throughout the city of Rome. But one of my most persistent memories from my recent trip were these small brass plaques embedded in the streets in front of doorways in the Jewish Ghetto. They are small but powerful memorials to...More

The Jewish quarter is interesting to see. Lots of restaurants so worth combining with a meal or a walk along the river.

If you are short of time you can skip the Jewish ghetto. The turtle fountain is a major disappointment. I looked hard to try to find the turtle. The Portico d'Ottavia was a small Roman ruin, next to the three columns of the Apollo Temple...More

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
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
