The Jewish community of Rome is probably the oldest in the world, with a continuous existence from classical times down to the present day. What makes this tour so fascinating is the evidence left from the centuries that have passed by.
We meet at the Vittoriano, the altar of the Fatherland built in honor of the first king of unified Italy. We make a stop on the most important out of the seven hills of Rome and seat on the municipality of Rome, the Capitoline Hill. Here we’ll delve into the relation between the Roman government and the Jewish community.
After we enter the Ghetto from the archeological area of the Theatre of Marcello, built at the time of Emperor Augustus.
We continue walking through the typical narrow alleys of this district to discover the history of this community that arrived in Rome starting from the II cent. BC.
We travel through history to learn how the site developed from 1555, when the pope established the Ghetto, to modern times when it was opened back and during the fascist dictatorship.
