Had been to the former Ghetto in Rome previously, so hadn't given much thought to a guided tour. Shortly before leaving for a 2 week Italian vacation hapened to see Micaela leading Rick Steves (yes that Rick Steves) on a walking tour of Jewish Rome. Good enough for me I thought, and she was. Jewish Roma was easy to contact, thorough and efficient to deal with, and relatively speaking, affordable.
Our guide was Sara, a young, friendly and vibrant Roman with her own interesting Jewish history. She and Micaela, who makes you feel like family, divided our large group into 2 smaller ones, so you always felt they we're paying attention to you. Sara was very knowledgeable, with a strong command of her Judaism. Received a genuine and moving education on Jewish life in Rome then and now. Felt like they brought the community to life.
Wear comfortable shoes. Sinagoga interesting and magnificent at the same time. Take all pictures outside. No pix in Synagogue or Museo Ebraico, an unhappy fact of our times. Happy my wife and I participated and would recommend JewishRoma, Micaela and her team to anyone wanting a real perspective on the Italian Jewish community.
