Your guided tour of Rome's little-known jewels Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto starts at Largo Argentina and the Senate House, where Julius Caesar was murdered. Your tour concludes three hours later at lovely Campo de'Fiori, the site of executions during the Inquisition and today one of Rome's liveliest piazzas.
On this entertaining and enlightening walking tour you will get a chance to see parts of the ancient city hidden below the modern street level. Rome certainly wasn't built in a day, so you'll see other periods in between, from Medieval to Renaissance and Baroque.
Your Rome-ophile guide will share their enthusiasm for these hidden parts of the city, entertaining you with the legends and secrets of Rome's most authentic neighborhoods and their cafés, synagogues and churches. You'll broaden your experience of Rome with a visit to areas most tourists don't visit, and be able to ask questions right on the spot about their history and significance.
All tour guides are native English-speakers or Roman archaeologist, hold university degrees in teaching and the humanities, and adhere to the highest standards of education.

Excellent. Interesting mix of buildings and stories. She made the ghetto come alive, despite the majority not being Jewish, and Trastevere is somewhere that all visitors should go to, but with advice on where to go and how not to be ripped off. We went back two days later for another look. It's not the Roman fora or the Vatican or the Roman temples - it's where much more ordinary people lived and still live. The tour guide was really good. She even negotiated with the local umbrella salesman for a greatly reduced price when the rain fell!

Fantastic tour. Brings the Ghetto and life there into perspective. Also showed a totally different side of Rome in Trastevere. We had a great guide from Michigan who brought it all to life for us. Would recommend this to anyone. Wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking.
