This private tour is created for those who wish to learn more about the history of the Jews in the city. Rome with a 2000-year Jewish presence has one of the oldest community in the world. To start the tour the guide takes you to St Peter’s in Chains for you to see the famous Statue of Moses by Michelangelo, then a walk towards the historical Ghetto; the same place the Roman Jewish community has thrived for over 500 years, your guide will explain the history of Jews from the Empire to the present.
After a walk through the ghetto you will be able to explore Rome’s Great Synagogue, and the only Jewish Museum in Rome. It is here that you will be introduced to the practices of the Roman Jews through both modern and historical perspective.
