About the tour

Discover an ancient Roman hill, where in ancient Roman time the Romans built a temple dedicated to Juno, Yuppiter and Minerva. Nowadays the beautiful square designed by Michelangelo hosts the city hall of Rome. Afterwards, we will take a walk in the Jewish ghetto, walking by the remains of the Marcellus theatre, the portico of Octavia. We will see also the place of an important memory. In 1943 another dreadful event once again revived the memories of the ghetto and put a bloody mark in its history. Rome was occupied by Nazi troops and they rounded up and deported to Auschwitz over a thousand members of Jewish community including the elderly, women and children, most of whom have never returned home. A plaque on one of the walls of the former ghetto commemorates this atrocious day.

Sara is a certified tour guide and her love and passion for her job is clear. The sites she shares are beautiful, and she points out bits of history and information that I find myself repeating at the dinner table!
