Join our amazing walking tour of Rome and discover the treasures of Trastevere, a charming neighborhood with over 2,500 years of history. You will visit the Basilica of Santa Maria, one of the oldest churches in Rome, and explore the Jewish Ghetto. A unique tour in the most picturesque area of Rome.
Come and join us for this amazing walking tour of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto, two of the most charming and pleasant areas of Rome.
The area of Trastevere offers a pleasant diversion from the tourist crowded historic center of Rome. The neighborhood is largely residential, characterized by narrow, cobble stone streets, with the structures from the Middle Ages and a large multiethnic student population from the university.
During this three hour exploration of Trastevere, you will find a fine selection of restaurants, bars and cafes that are frequented by locals. We will be walking and admiring the monuments and atmosphere of this authentic area of Rome.
Trastevere literally means beyond the Tiber, the river that runs through Rome and was originally connected to the main city by a small wooden bridge.
The immigrants, mainly Jews and Syrians, arrived from the East and settled in the area. The center of the public life of the neighborhood is Piazza di Santa Maria, where you will find the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most visited churches in the city of Rome.
The Rome walking tour also includes a visit to the Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, located near the Tiber River, in an area surrounded by Via del Portico d'Ottavia, by the Lungotevere de Cenci, near Via del Progresso and by Via of Santa Maria del Pianto. In Italian, the Ghetto was called Serraglio degli Ebrei, which means the fence of the Jews.
The Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, which today is a charming area, and where there is the Rome's Synagogue, is an area renowned for its restaurants and some of the best food stores in the whole city.
