Discover the fascinating story of Rome’s ancient Jewish community in the beautiful and historic Roman Ghetto! Rome’s Jewish community is the most ancient in Europe and the atmospheric Jewish Ghetto is rich with history and tradition on every street. Walk along the lively main street of Via Portico d’Ottavia with its characteristic Kosher shops and bakeries and sample the unique flavors of Roman Jewish cuisine. Dive into the cobbled backstreets, gaze up at the magnificent Synagogue and learn about the long and turbulent history of this indomitable community, a story of emigration and persecution but also of triumph over adversity. Along the way, you'll visit picturesque Piazza Mattei with its famous turtle fountain, the imposing Portico d’Ottavia with the remains of the city’s medieval fish market and even the grand ruins of the spectacular Teatro Marcello, an ancient Roman theatre.
