This historical Jewish Ghetto dates back to 1555, when Pope Paul IV restricted all Jews to a small area of the city, which was then walled in. Today, the ghetto has wonderful eating places with cross-cultural dishes, and a beautiful synagogue with a small museum inside.

We had read about the ghetto, but forgot about it until we stumbled across it. The old Jewish Ghetto is a good walk not just to hear Shalom but from an historic Roman perspective. See houses with character as you stroll the narrow streets, plenty of shops and restaurants. Lots of excavations in progress.

Interesting area to visit while walking around exploring the Eternal City! Here you'll hear Shalom instead of Ciao!

Due to our great interest and unending enthusiasm for Jewish history, we loved visiting the Jewish ghetto. The stories and the active life today are all interesting. An inexpensive tour from the museum enabled us to appreciate and understand where we were and what we saw. These days, now- there are enough meat restaurants to satisfy the kosher consumer for...

The Ghetto is a must walk for everyone who wants to see an old neighborhood with characteristic houses, narrow streets, shops, traditional and modern restaurants. It's not only for tourists, it is an old authentic Roman scenery. Try the local food.

Incredible tour. Excellent guide. Five food samples. Pizza, pasta(3 choices), rice ball, fried artichoke, deli samples, wine, gelato. All were delicious. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the ghetto. Very interesting.

Historical location in the hearth of Rome. Near largo Argentina a wonderful place for walking, for eating traditional roman jewish dishes and during the evening for a cocktail, a glass of wine or a beer in piazza mattei (where Is located the wonderful turtles fountain). Some curiosities: the ghetto was the set of some movies like, for example, "Le fate... More

The Jewish ghetto is a place that you should visit in your stay in Rome couple of hours to stay and view the old building and history of his incredible civilisation. A lot of great restaurant and fantastic food.

So much to see :) It's unique way to see the history - to touch it, to smell the atmosphere, to feel it. The old buildings - a piece of Italian history. One day probably won't be enough to look around. If you like history, this is must seen place for you.

We visited the Roman ghetto one afternoon. There were several kosher restaurants and several other restaurants (non-kosher) that featured Roman Jewish dishes. Unless you are planning to visit the synagogue, there is not much else to see.

Going to the Ghetto Ebraico (Jewish Ghetto) was one of the highlights of my trip. Actually, walked around there about three different days. Even got to eat in kosher restaurants (and I don't like kosher meat) and enjoy it fully. One of my best experiences was going to a kosher restaurant and having a muslim waiter take care of my...

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
