Jewish Rome Tour

The Papacy required Rome’s 2000 Jewish residents to live in the ghetto from 1555 until 1870. The ghetto was a walled quarter with its gates locked at night. The cost of the wall’s construction, 300 Roman scudi, had to be paid by the Jewish community. Portico d’ Ottavia, once the center of the ghetto, is now surrounded by quiet backstreets and lively piazzas in this close-knit neighborhood. The ghetto walls were torn down in 1888.

Oftentimes, we hop into one of the delicious bakeries for sweets on this tour and then make our way to the Great Synagogue.
