A fascinating museum which connects the story of the Jews to so much of what happened in Rome. Although its barely mentioned at the Colosseum, it was Jewish slaves taken from the Roman siege of Jerusalem that built the Colosseum. They have very old Torah...More

We're not Jewish but that didn't detract from the experience at all. The very reasonable admission price includes a guided tour of the synagogue and an audio guide and we just got in as a guided tour was setting off. The history of the Jewish...More

We took a tour which included the beautiful synagogue. They gave us audio guides in our language to view the exhibits/artifacts in the museum section. Lots of information and very detailed. There are several rooms including the artifacts and it is very organized.

The price of admission includes a short synagogue tour, museum and audio guide. Our synagogue tour was cut short because shortly after the guide began her monologue a ceremony began for a couple who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. As a non-jew, I really...More

Seeing the survival of a Synagouge that survived WWII was breath taking. The collection of the antiques are unreal. Walking into the synagogue was like history stood still. The structure inside is more breath taking than the inside. The Jewish Ghetto is almost untouched. Some...More

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

There is a tour of the Jewish qr, I don’t remember the price but as far as I remember it wasn’t expensive. You need to get a ticket for that tour separately.

I don't think you need to do anything special, perhaps bring an ID for security, and if you're Jewish bring your own Sefer & Kipa. It's a beautiful synagogue...good luck!
