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 pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
"An insight into Jewish culture and history in Rome"

I visited the museum during a holiday in Rome when I spent a half day in the Jewish quarter. I thought the museum was very interesting and the Great Synagogue was absolutely beautiful. It was moving and sad to hear how many of the synagogue's members did not survive the war. The only criticism I would have is that there...

After visiting The Mouth of Truth, checking out the 2 temples Hercules Victor & Portuno we came upon this amphitheatre. In the summer they house concerts here. My friend went to the cafe next door while I checked this place out.
The theatre really resembles a small Colosseum. I remember driving past this in 2012, but never...
Augustus built this temple to Jupiter and Juno in the name of his big sister Octavia. It burnt down twice and was damaged by an earthquake in the 5th century, but here it still is (or at least some of it) in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto. It must have been something in it's day - Pliny lists the...
Wow, we just stumbled across this church and are so glad we did. It has the most amazing interior and exterior. The highlight is the stunning painted dome ceiling which is an amazing piece of artwork. Well worth seeking out if you are near Piazza Navona or Teatro Marcello.
We ate at the Laffa/Kebbab Fonzie.
The fish shwarma was tasty and rich with all kinds of vegetables.
Daniel was very welcoming and made the meal more interesting (in a good way).
The lamb laffa was OK but not the best I ever ate.
The hummus is tasty as if it is home made (didn't ask).
My girlfriend and I had an amazing experience. Top notch service and high quality fresh food. The first night we met our friend and we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The tartare was perfection. Another standout dish was the fried artichoke and lamb dish which was simple yet flavourful. The second night we came we...
We were recommended this hotel by friends and were so grateful for it. Everything we had read about HT6 turned out to be true and more. We stayed for four nights and I can't think of one negative comment to write.
The staff were all so attentive, warm and eager to help.
Our room was comfortable with fresh bottled water...
If you are happy to stay in a place where you have to phone the owner to get access, where you are left to your own devices and you can handle stairs then the location itself is worth those niggly things that one misses not staying at a hotel. The stairs from the street to the rooms are steep and...
