Your guided tour of Rome's little-known jewels Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto starts at Largo Argentina and the Senate House, where Julius Caesar was murdered. Your tour concludes three hours later at lovely Campo de'Fiori, the site of executions during the Inquisition and today one of Rome's liveliest piazzas.
On this entertaining and enlightening walking tour you will get a chance to see parts of the ancient city hidden below the modern street level. Rome certainly wasn't built in a day, so you'll see other periods in between, from Medieval to Renaissance and Baroque.
Your Rome-ophile guide will share their enthusiasm for these hidden parts of the city, entertaining you with the legends and secrets of Rome's most authentic neighborhoods and their cafés, synagogues and churches. You'll broaden your experience of Rome with a visit to areas most tourists don't visit, and be able to ask questions right on the spot about their history and significance.
All tour guides are native English-speakers or Roman archaeologist, hold university degrees in teaching and the humanities, and adhere to the highest standards of education.

This is a very good tour of a part of central Rome that is slightly off the beaten track. The guide was excellent - so good, that despite the pouring rain which lasted the duration, the 6 tourists stuck with the tour to the very end. She had whetted our appetites for more, even if we were "wetted" through! The history of Rome, its architecture as well as the history of the Ghetto were well presented. I would certainly recommend Viator based on this experience.
