Former ghetto, the Main Synagogue and the Jewish Museum
Discover Rome through a Jewish lens!
In 1555, a ghetto was established on the banks of the Tiber River. The ghetto was essentially a prison-neighborhood within Rome, surrounded by fences and gates. As it was considered unacceptable for Jews to live together with Christians, Pope Paul IV Carafa promulgated a series of restrictions on the Jewish community such as would marginalize it for centuries.
Today, the Jewish Quarter is a lively area, frequented night and day by both tourists and Romans.
Our guides are all allowed by the Jewish Community of Rome: they will share with you their passion for the history of the Roman Jewish community and its centurie-old connection with the Capital.
