Explore two of Rome’s most beautiful & off the beaten track neighbourhoods on this private tour of the artistic Trastevere district, Tiber Island, & the historic Jewish Ghetto.
Take a stroll through two of Rome’s most evocative and picturesque quarters on this off the beaten path walking tour of Rome local neighbourhoods. Both Trastevere & the Jewish Ghetto feel like two small villages nestled in the city centre. Along with containing some of the most exquisite artistic pieces in the city, you can still catch real Romans going about their daily lives, pausing for an espresso at the local bar or a chat with a friend under an ancient Roman arch.
The Roman Jewish Ghetto is famed for its history where the Jewish community resisted oppression for centuries. While once being the worst part of the city to live in, it’s now a sought-after destination for those with Jewish heritage or for anyone seeking to taste the unique artistic & culinary offerings that developed here. The magnificent synagogue & bustling main street are a testament to the regenerative Roman spirit. No Jewish ghetto tour can skip a visit to the 1st-century Theater of Marcellus and the Tiber Island whose history dates back to ancient times.
Trastevere is a photographer’s dream with twisting cobblestone alleyways, hanging ivy & crumbling rust coloured walls but behind the humble church, facades lie some of the city’s most prized artistic pieces - all without the usual crowds. This Trastevere tour will take in not only the Basilica of Santa Cecilia & Santa Maria in Trastevere but the sensual work of Bernini’s ecstasy of Ludovica Albertoni that mingles the meaning of desire and devotion.
