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.

  • Private Venice Shore Excursion Venice for Children

    Good morning below some answers regarding feedback. Please could you pass on our thanks to Elisabetta we will be sure to catch up with her again when not if we return.
    Our overall Experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was Very good, although a couple of minor points that would have made the tour excellent. The journey from the cruise boat to the real tour starting point in Venice seems a little disorganised and involved us in queuing to get vepretto tickets. This could have been sorted before we arrived or alternatively we could have met in St Marks square which means we did not lose 45 minutes of our 3 hr tour. We thought the gondola tour cost more than we could have got it for on the day although the convenience was great. Elisabetta was great though and made the tour very personal to us. Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was a great introduction to a fabulous city.

  • Under the Tuscan Sun Tour

    We had a wonderful tour of Tuscany, and it was the perfect break from a busy holiday in Rome. Our driver, Andreas, was punctual, friendly, very knowledgeable, and a safe driver. The tour of the first winery was excellent. We especially liked the cheese house and tasting in the store. The tour of the 2nd winery was not as good as the first one; however, the wine was much better. Our stop in the town of Manciano was the perfect break in the day and the restaurant Andreas recommended for lunch provided some of the best food we had during our entire vacation in Italy.
    In regards to your other specific questions, the answers are as follows:
    – Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was professional and well organized from start to finish.
    – Yes, we would recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
    – We found Nancy Aiello Tours searching on-line for wine tours from Rome.
    Thank you again and have a good day.

  • Private Livorno Shore Excursion Best of Cinque Terre & Portofino Trip

    Dear Rachel,
    My apologies for not writing to you sooner about our visit in Liguria with Dino (July 16th, 2011). We had a magnificent day visiting Cinque Terre and Portofino. Dino was a great guide and driver and brought us to some truly unique places and memorable vantage points to create some great memories. The drive up and down the hills above Cinque Terre were some of the most remarkable roads I have ever seen. No wonder these towns were only accessible by sea for most of their history. I would strongly recommend your organization and look forward to future opportunities to visit Italy.
    Best regards,

    Warren Cooper
