Ghetto and Trastevere

From the Rome of Caesars to the Medieval one passing by the old Ghetto and the traditional district of Trastevere: an indispensable tour to fulfill Rome’s understanding.

This tour is extremely evocative in feeling, imagining and understanding Rome in the past centuries: both the Rome of Caesars and the vibrant Rome of the Popes in the Middle Age. On the slopes of Capitoline Hill the Teatro Marcello and Portico of Octavia’s impressive ruins make us find immediately in the greatness of ancient Rome. You’ll see ancient buildings’ monumentality and quality and how those had been adapted to the needs of Christian Rome, an example above all: the fish market was placed among roman marbles! From there we will carry on visiting the Ghetto, the oldest and with the biggest synagogue in Europe. The Ghetto had been completely gutted and rebuilt but the inevitable evidence of the past are everywhere and tell us a lot! Through the Roman Bridge we will cross the Tiber, see Tiber Island and reach the other shore to be fascinated by Trastevere district charm. The narrow alleys, old houses, roman traditions and oddities dotted with beautiful and impressive churches: Rome most popular and traditional soul. Only who comes from Trastevere can call himself a roman, proudly claim its inhabitants, will it be true?

  My family and I headed to Italy for a once in a lifetime trip and RomeByLocals and their guide was nothing short of Fabulous for our first tour in Rome to the Vatican and Catacombs, Pablo was so knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with that he truly made the our tour more enjoyable then we ever could have imagined.  If you are looking for a great local tour company we highly recommend RomeByLocals, you cannot go wrong!  Thanks RomeByLocals!  The DeStefano Family
