Treat yourselves a few hours away from the big crowds and indulge with us in the famous roman Rioni! Traditional neighborhoods where everyday life still moves at a slow pace… Away from fancy ambience of Emperors and Popes there still is a part of town, where industrious merchants and artisans lived, overlooking the Tiber.
Located facing each other on different sides of the river, here lie the neighborhoods of Ghetto and Trastevere!
Areas inhabited for centuries by the local Jews and by the “Working Class”, they still amaze the visitors for their different look, strong character and variety of food traditions!
Our tour will start in the Ghetto, where the oldest Jewish community in Europe still resides and keeps their activities and culture alive! Also a place of pain and segregation, where the Jews were conscripted to live for over 300 years. We’ll also visit the Synagogue, one of the largest in Europe.
From there we’ll proceed to the other side of the Tiber River, by crossing the Tiberine Island. Then we’ll reach nearby Trastevere, perhaps the very heart of Rome. Walking the picturesque alleys that still keep their medieval look, you can’t do without smelling freshly made pizza coming from local traditional bakeries!!
Also an intense cultural experience, our tour of Trastevere involves the visit of the Church of Santa Cecilia (Patron Saint of Musicians), one of the greatest example of medieval church in town taking you to the Origins of Christianity.
At the end of the tour we’ll be happy to give you tips and suggestions about local restaurants, Roman Trattorias, where you will indulge in tasting true authentic local specialties!!!
