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

  • Rome Luxury Family Tour Package

    Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fabulous. I can’t say enough good about the entire experience. So worth the money and the tours helped make our trip memorable and want us to return. Luccianna was great with my boys and had a wealth of knowledge. One of my sons even said “I can see why she is a tour guide, she knows how to ask me questions that make me interested!” I love that she did that – asked them questions and not just tell them facts but give them the why behind a fact. Also our driver, Christiano, from the airport was great too. He stopped at an ATM machine at our request and then offered to get us some espressos too. Those were much needed that morning.
    Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fantastic. I would highly recommend Nancy Aiello Tours. The confirmation email was filled with the details I needed and wanted and the people selected were great. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours reading other parents’ blogs and lots of Google searching. All other reviews were great too. Thanks,

  • Best of Rome Tour

    A Google search led me to TripAdvisor and your tours. The reviews people wrote just raved. I concur; Roberta was amazing and friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and took us so many amazing places and not just the big sites that we requested, but also such an entertaining route through beautiful piazzas. Making arrangements through email, though, was very fast and turned out to be efficient, as it allowed us to fully communicate what we wanted. Thank you.

  • Rome Family Vacation Package

    Hi Nancy,
    We just returned from our week trip to Italy and the 4 days we spent in Rome with your knowledgeable, energetic and fun guide Roberta were fantastic.
    I truly believe we saw more in 4 days than most people see in 2 weeks. Roberta made sure we never stood in line for anything – we literally walked into both the Vatican and the Vatican museum. Besides seeing many of the major sites in Rome proper, we also spent a day in Tivoli. Our group of 9 ranged in age from 12 to 69and had a variety of interests and physical abilities.
    Roberta made sure that there something each day to appeal to every member of our family. For example, my 69-year-old dad wanted to visit some local open air markets and try restaurants with some true atmosphere; my teenage sons were interested in the more bizarre sites such as the catacombs and the Crypt of the Capuchins. This is just a sampling of what we accomplished in a very few days. We were able to go at a pace that kept the younger members involved, but did not wear out my parents.
    For our family, this was a truly memorable experience and the best way to see Rome in a short time.
