Enjoy a walking guided tour of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto of Rome and soak up the neighbourhood’s bohemian atmosphere and its numerous landmarks.
Trastevere and Jewish Ghetto Tour
The tour meets in the bustling Piazza Trilussa, on the banks of the River Tiber, beginning the guided tour of the ancient Roman Jewish Quarter. From here we'll explore Trastevere via their picturesque cobbled streets, arriving finally at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the most impressive sights in all Rome, and certainly the most famous in this neighbourhood.
Then our tour of Trastevere continues to the Tiber river, where we'll cross the Cestio Bridge to explore the unusual Tiber Island, and one of its crown jewels: the Basilica of St. Bartholomew.
Now on the other side of the river, the moment has arrived to visit Rome's Jewish Quarter. Once we're there we'll stop by the Theatre of Marcellus - which bears a striking resemblance to another of Rome's famous ancient monuments. And nearby you'll be able to admire the Sant'Angelo Church and the Pórtico de Octavia.
Then, the tour of the Jewish ghetto will take us across the via di Sant'Ambrogio to the famous Fontana delle Tartarughe (Turtle Fountain) in Piazza Mattei - where you'll learn all about the legends surrounding its construction.
And we'll continue to soak up the atmosphere of the neighbourhood, passing through Via Arenula, one of the main shopping areas in the neighbourhood, and arriving at the imposing Church of San Blas and San Carlos ai Catanari. And the final stops on the tour will take place in the diminutive entrance to the church of Santa Barbara dei Librai - just around the corner from the famous Campo de' Fiori.
