Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto

Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto


per person

the Untouched Rome

Discover the streets and charming plazas of untouched neighborhoods of Rome where you can still breathe the atmosphere of past centuries.
We meet at Campo de’ Fiori, the plaza of the market of flowers and vegetables, and we’ll walk around charming alleys to admire corners of a no longer preserved Rome, the city of craftsmen and artisans.
We visit the area of the former Ghetto, now a lovely district, where you’ll discover the story of the oldest Jewish community of Europe.
We can have a stop in one of the last kiosks serving a  grattachecca (snow-cone), admiring the Roman bridges at the Tiber Island. Then we’ll explore the labyrinth of Trastevere, probably the only area of Rome untouched by Baroque renovations or Fascist demolitions.
Be ready to admire stunning mosaics at the Basilica of St. Cecilia and Santa Maria in Trastevere.
We’ll finish just in time for your lunch in one of the local   trattorias  (family-run restaurants). Trastevere is the place to go for a genuine meal (even for the Romans!).
