Rome’s Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Walking Tour with Pizza Tasting

Experience this captivating guided tour in Rome that takes you through time as we delve into the origins of the Jewish Ghetto, established in 1555 by Pope Paul IV to accommodate the city’s 5,000-strong Jewish population. Nestled near the tranquil banks of the Tiber River, this historic walled enclave has evolved into one of Rome’s most enthralling neighborhoods.

Embarking on our Trastevere and Jewish Ghetto walking tour, we commence our adventure in Trastevere. Once a renowned Regio during the reign of Emperor Augustus (Trans-Tiberim, meaning “across the Tiber”), Trastevere has preserved its medieval charm with its labyrinthine streets, narrow alleys, and charming squares.

During our exploration, we will visit significant Roman churches, including the venerable Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, an ancient Christian site of great significance, and the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, constructed upon the very location of the revered saint’s former residence (excluding its crypt.)

Immerse yourself in the ancient allure of Trastevere, with its picturesque streets and remnants of the medieval synagogue. We will then cross the Tiber River, capturing the breathtaking view of the renowned Ponte Rotto, Rome’s oldest stone bridge.

As we leave the idyllic Tiber Island behind, we venture into the heart of the former Jewish Ghetto. Here, we will delve into the compelling history of the Roman Jews, their profound cultural influence on the city, and the lasting impact they have left on this vibrant district.

Throughout the tour, our expert guide will point out Jewish-owned establishments, kosher restaurants, and traditional shops and cafés in both areas. We invite you to savor a traditional slice of pizza, a culinary delight not to be missed.

To ensure an intimate experience, our Walks in Europe tour accommodates a small group, with a maximum of eight participants. Rome Trastevere private walking tour offers multiple departures throughout the day, tailored to the season, concluding just in time for lunch or supper.

Feel free to consult your guide for recommendations to organize your own very best food tour in Rome. Our guides can give you great tips on where and what to eat, as both Trastevere and Ghetto offer a delightful array of dining options to satisfy your palate.
