What You Can Expect

Trastevere and Rome's Jewish Ghetto Half-Day Walking Tour

Santa Maria, Trastevere

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 caf├ęs, 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 tour highlights areas of the city you may not normally wander into on your own. Our tour guide Janette was great. She had a depth of knowledge and presented it in an interesting upbeat manner. She had as much enthusiasm at 6PM as she did at 9PM.

This was a small group and an amazing tour. So much history and our tour guide was AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable. It was great to have our small group and be able to ask questions and get so much of the side street of Rome. I had my 7 year old and 17 year old both loved the tour and the tour guide. Great for all ages, don't miss this tour!

Jeanette was amazing and so knowledgable! Great, small group of 6 people, and we learned all about the best places to eat, etc not just about the history. Would never have known about any of this had i not taken the tour. Super easy to get to on the bus from the Termini if you don't take a taxi. Just don't forget to pay before you get on the bus. A sweet nun paid for me since I don't know you needed to do this. Perfect at night because it was getting cooler at that time. This may have been my favorite tour of my whole trip.

This tour was fantastic! Jeanette was so knowledgeable and so much fun- we really enjoyed this tour. So did our 18-year-old grandson! There was World War II history and ancient history and everything in between. Jeanette was a real charmer and I would have enjoyed spending a day with her or more.

Even though we covered the same neighborhoods with Viator's small group food walking tour not to be missed!, we found the history fascinating and the tour guide delightful. We really like the small groups as opposed to the larger ones.

A real eye opener! I never realised the history of this part of Rome's past. Janette apologies if I've misspelt really knows her stuff and made the whole tour really entertaining.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Our tour guide, Jeanette, was great. Very informative, amusing and sassy. We walked to places we wouldn't have visited and her recommendations were spot on. All in all a very good way to see some of the less well known, but still interesting, parts of Rome.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015
