Description

While most people identify Italy as the most Catholic country in the world, actually, it’s said that Rome is the city where Jews first migrated to the Western World. Arriving as messengers sent by Judah Maccabee in the second century B.C.E., even withstanding all the cataclysm that disrupted their existence, the Jewish population continued to grow in Rome.
The Jews spent 315 years (from 1555 to 1870) in the Ghetto and during that period they lived in incredible poverty with cramped conditions increasing more and more as the population grew in an area that was often flooded by the overflow from the Tiber river.
Strolling down tiny streets and pedestrian areas of the quarter, we will get in touch with the past and the present day life of one of the biggest Jewish community in Europe.
We will finish the visit in the Jewish Museum of Rome, reopened only in 2005, located in the great Synagogue building, showing 7 new areas of magnificent artifacts and precious documents, witness of the 2000 year old history of Jews in Rome.
N.B.: Need to book at least one day in advance.
