Within Rome renowned for its ties to the Catholic Church the Jewish Ghetto is the place to learn about the Diaspora and the cultural legacies of this old community. The Jewish community of Rome is the oldest in the Diaspora, dating back to the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD. Stroll through history into the Jewish areas of the city on a timeless journey. The Ghetto and the Trastevere district are filled with great stories to tell. Roman Jews are different from the Judah Maccabee who set their roots in Rome as early as 161 BCE. The Jews, who came as slaves of Titus were freed and established themselves in the Trastevere neighborhood, where the Jews used to live until the Renaissance. Explore the lively area around Campo de’ Fiori. Discover centuries of history along the cobblestoned, streets of the city leading to the Ghetto. This old quarter is where from 1555 Pope Paul IV decreed that all Jews must be segregated and forced to live until 1870. Today the Jewish community continues living in the neighborhood where their parents and their grandparents have always lived-in keeping up with their traditions. Learn how the Jews lived here over the centuries and the role played in the history of Rome.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Vatican Children Tour

    Hello. I apologize for this tardy reply, but did want to get back to you about our tour. Everything about the experience was excellent, and I thought the tour was a good value. Our guide (Lucia) was terrific the perfect mix of energy and humor for our kids, and knowledge and insider info for the adults. My husband was skeptical about getting a private guide but was very pleased with how it turned out and agreed it was the best way. My 11 year old daughter cites our Vatican tour as the highlight of our trip to Rome. And my 6 year old son still can tell people how many heads he counted in the gallery with Lucia! I appreciated how quickly I was able to make the arrangements with your office (less than a week before our visit) and also I appreciated that before Lucia said goodbye to us she made sure we knew how to continue to explore St. Peters (we wanted to climb to the top of the dome) and she did not just abandon us at the exit from the Sistine Chapel.
    Overall it was terrific, and just writing this makes me want to start planning our next trip back. I would absolutely recommend your company to anyone visiting Rome! Many thanks,

    Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was very good. There were no miscommunications, all drivers and guides were on time, and the support line worked very well. The guides were very good, especially Francesca in Florence, who was outstanding. Very reliable company with qualified, knowledgeable, and friendly guides.

    I am so very happy to answer these questions, as we couldn’t have been more pleased with your services!
    Your agency and the excellent customer service will be first in my line of recommendations from our recent travels. Everything you arranged was professional and with stellar guides.
    While Filipo might be better suited for adult only tours, he tried very hard with the girls. But clearly his passion and proud Roman education is contagious….but maybe a little esoteric for smaller children. However, his enthusiasm for his city made us all appreciate the beauty and history of Rome, that much more.
    However, Nadia in Venice was perfect with our 9 year old twin daughters. She even sent us parents out of the room to better plan a surprise for us with the girls assistance. From hidden gems to the way to maneuver the streets and alleys of Venice, she was a wealth of information. We loved her affectionate ways and her desire to show us her beloved city.
    As this was the first time in our lives, we ever used a travel specialist, we were hesitant at first. But since we had the girls with us, we thought it better to use a professional service. We were so right and so blessed to have found this in Nancy Aiello Tours. I believe I first read about you from something that originated in Travel and Leisure, but honestly, it has been too many months now since I began my exhaustive research.
    The value for my money was perfect, because our tours were priceless. Without a doubt, we would have missed the perfect moments and not discovered the hidden gems, if it wasn’t for Filipo and Nadia. I thank you for finding such delightful personalities to spend our afternoons with us. And to be fair, none of this would have happened without Rachel in your front office. Her communication was speedy, spot on and completely reliable. I hope you know what a treasure you have in her since she is your first line of communication.
    I wish your company continued success and look forward to our return visit, in no small part because of your expertise.
    Warm regards,
    Namaste
