3 hours tour of the Jewish district and of medieval and renaissance Rome most popular areas.
See 1st century BC Teatro Marcello and the ruins of Octavia’s Portico, ancient Rome popular market area and center of Rome Jewish community life. A Jewish community is first recorded in Rome in 139 BC, oldest in Europe. Retrace its development since the time when Jewish traders from Israel first settled in the district of Trastevere to 1555 when they were moved to the area that became Rome Jewish ghetto for 300 years. See narrow alleys and a few dwellings that still tell of the miserable living conditions in the old ghetto. Visit the beautiful 1905 Synagogue and its museums of the Rome Jewish Community. From the old ghetto walk to nearby medieval and renaissance Rome: see the open air market of “Campo de’ Fiori” with picturesque stalls, Palazzo Spada with Borromini’s amazing trompe l’oeil gallery and Piazza Farnese with Michelangelo’s magnificent palace. Stroll along colourful backstreets, lined by antique stores and craftsman workshops, to breathtaking Piazza Navona with Bernini’s fountains, sidewalk artists and outdoor cafés.
