Our 3-hour walking tour starts in Trastevere and then takes you over the Tiber to the Jewish Ghetto.  Trastevere is a picturesque neighbourhood that dates back to medieval times. It is a charming area that is filled with narrow winding streets, alleyways and pedestrian squares. We offer intimate walking tours to delve deeper underneath the touristy veneer. Trastevere was once home to the wealthy Etruscans. Here, you will visit some of Rome’s most important churches, including Santa Cecilia, the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere and San Francesco a Ripa. Walking around this neighbourhood is the best way to see all of the monuments and landmarks, as well as to get a great feeling for this area of Rome.

Jewish Ghetto
Your walking tour continues with the Jewish Ghetto, where you will learn about the Jewish history and presence in Rome, which is still very much visible today. Discover Rome's Jewish Ghetto; or Roman Ghetto, established in 1555 by Pope Paul IV for the 5,000 Jews that lived in Rome at the time. The former walled quarter sits close to the river Tiber, and today is one of the most fascinating quarters of the city. Led by an experienced guide, see  Jewish-owned businesses, visit kosher restaurants and, when possible, even take you to the  Synagogue of Rome.  The Porticus Octaviae is one of the most recognised landmarks in the ghetto, which sits in the middle of Piazza Mattei. On this 3 hour Rome Trastevere walking tour  you will also see the  Ponte Rotto, which is the oldest stone bridge in all of Rome.
