Overview

Discover a section of Rome’s historical center that many visitors don’t experience, and learn about the history of Jewish Rome on this 3-hour walking tour with a knowledgeable guide. You’ll explore Trastevere, a charming neighborhood of narrow, winding lanes that’s popular for its nightlife, as well as the Jewish Ghetto area, where you’ll see the Synagogue of Rome. Learn much about these interesting districts from an experienced guide with a background in the city’s archaeology and history.
  • Three-hour afternoon walking tour of Trastevere and Rome's Jewish Ghetto
  • Walking tour of Rome's fascinating little-visited areas
  • Interior visit of Santa Maria in Trastevere church (subject to church schedule)
  • Jewish Ghetto synagogue (exterior visit)
  • Entertaining and informative tours led by exceptionally knowledgeable guides
Meet your guide at Largo di Torre Argentina to begin your walking tour of Trastevere and the historical Jewish Ghetto area. Before you starting walking, learn from your guide about this square that’s home of ancient Roman ruins, near the site where Julius Caesar was assassinated.

Throughout your tour, listen to insightful commentary from your guide, an authority on Roman archaeology, culture and history, as you see remnants from ancient Rome that sit below today’s street level, as well as relics and architecture from medieval, Renaissance and baroque periods. Learn about the churches, synagogues, historical landmarks and popular cafes that make up these districts that combine rich history with modern-day Roman life, and feel free to ask any questions you may have as you walk.

Visit the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest churches in Rome with a past that dates back to the 340s AD, and see the exterior of the Synagogue of Rome, built in the early 1900s. Your tour ends at Campo de' Fiori, one of Rome’s busiest squares, from where you can continue exploring on your own.

Great tour! We enjoyed getting to see both the quieter and busier parts of Trastevere. We enjoyed learning about the history and how the locals live far from the maddening crowds. Thank you.

Excellent and knowledgeable guide. We did this in the late afternoon, so it wasnt anything like a half-day, but it was the right amount of time to see the Jewish Ghetto and to learn about life in Rome for Jewish people.

Lots of fun with our guide Irene. A wonderful, funny, entertaining and very knowledgeable lady who took us at a leisurely pace without rushing and showed us a side and history of Rome that perhaps not so many people are aware of. Highly recommended.

Guide complained more about not having the right shoes on to do this tour and we felt that she was trying to rush the group and finish early.

I had a good time on this tour and was glad to learn the history of the areas. I would have preferred an Italian guide who speaks English vs. an American, which while some would definitely prefer, I feel lessens the Italian experience. I would have also liked a more organized dinner as part of the tour since this was an evening tour. Overall I enjoyed myself and would recommend it.

Our guide, Irene, infused her pride in her city into our tour. This made the three hours with her even better. A walking tour let's you see everything and miss nothing of interest. We will now seek out more walking tours in our travels.
