Trastevere & Jewish Ghetto Small-Group Walking Tour

Explore Rome’s Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto neighborhoods. Uncover the hidden gems of Rome, some of which you might miss if exploring on your own. From the narrow cobbled streets of the Jewish Ghetto to the vibrant and enchanted alleys of Trastevere, learn about Rome’s past, history and traditions. Pass through Tiber Island, the place very often overlooked by visitors. Get the personal attention of your expert guide in a small group.

What you can expect on this walking tour

Meet your guide at 9:45AM in front of the Flying Tiger store, at Largo di Torre Argentina. You will begin with the tour of the Jewish Ghetto, the place where the Jewish population of Rome was forced to live for over 300 years. Walk the streets of the Roman Jewish Ghetto frozen in time, and learn about the life, traditions, and cuisine developed in this secluded place.

From the ghetto, you will head to Rome’s Tiber Island, the place where the basket with the twins, and legendary founders of Rome Romulus and Remus washed ashore. The island is home to the oldest hospital in Rome, a very mysterious church, and some of the best restaurants in the city.

The third and final venue is the wonderful neighborhood of Trastevere. One of the oldest Roman neighborhoods, Trastevere has that special vibe that attracts millions of people every year, and where Romans enjoy a variety of restaurants and the busy nightlife. Trastevere is rich in history and tradition and it is an absolute must-see place.

The tour ends in Piazza Trilussa in Trastevere, around 12pm, a perfect time for lunch, your guide will give you plenty of suggestions and point out the best places to have a real Roman lunch.
