In a city full of history and heritage, the Roman Jewish Ghetto still stands out. Rome is home to Europe's oldest Jewish community, 2,000 years of continuous inhabitance. From 1555 to 1870, the Jews of Rome were confined in a walled-in quarter close to the Tiber. Even after the walls came down, the Ghetto has remained the center of Jewish life in Rome. Walking its alleyways, touching its stones, and visiting its traditional businesses and restaurants, you can feel the millennium-long history of Roman Jewry, from ancient times to the Ghetto era, from the horrors of the Holocaust to the evolving modern community. The story of Roman Jews is a fascinating one, full of tragedy and perseverance and a deep sense of identity. You could read about it in a book, but on this tour, you can see, feel, and even eat it for yourself.
