This tour brings you to the oldest Jewish community in Europe, with a visit to the neighborhood formally referred to as Rome's Jewish Ghetto. Abolished in 1882, it was originally established in 1555 to segregate Jewish residents, which was accomplished by constructing walls around the neighborhood in the historic city centre. Despite its tragic past, the Jewish Ghetto is one of the the most beautiful areas in present day Rome.
Discover the history and culture of this area with a visit to the 19th century synagogue, which is also home to the Jewish Museum of Rome, or indulge in some of the best cuisine with a stop in one of the many kosher restaurants or local markets. See the Fontane delle Tartarughe, la Bocca della Verità
Complete your day with a visit to the iconic Colosseum. See the largest amphitheatre built during its time, with the capacity to hold 50,000-80,000 guests.

Now considered one of the new 7 Wonders of the World, the Flavian Amphitheatre as it was originally named, is a must see during your time in Rome.
