When you visit the Museo Ebraico di Roma, you get a fine introduction to the living of jews in Rome for the last 2000 years.

The museum isn’t very big but has a nice selection of artifacts and the guided tour of the beautiful synagogue was definitely worth it. It is located in the ghetto and there are a few kosher restaurants nearby. The museum shop also had a nice...More

The museum was a lot smaller than we expected, having seen a lot of Jewish museums in Europe or the US. It will only take you some 30 minutes max. The entry comes with a guided tour and we had an excellent young man trying...More

Emperor Titus conquered Jerusalem in 70 AD and brought back Jewish slaves. These resilient people have survived and thrived for centuries in Rome. The architecture of their synagogue tells a beautiful story. The ceiling is painted with blue stars to symbolize the promise to Abraham...More

The major downside was the gruff, rude attitude of the staff in the shop/sales area. Offhand, discourteous and unhelpful, as if we were interrupting their time. Our tour guide through the Synagogue was outstanding, wonderful knowledge and open in her views and to answering questions....More

In-depth look at the history of the Roman Jewish community, which pre-dates the Ashkenazi-Sephardi split. My kids were fascinated by this museum and didn't want to leave.

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

Sorry for the late reply. As others already explained, we walked into the museum/synagogue and joined the tours in the front office, which is also a souvenir shop.

There is a tour of the Jewish qr, I don’t remember the price but as far as I remember it wasn’t expensive. You need to get a ticket for that tour separately.

I don't think you need to do anything special, perhaps bring an ID for security, and if you're Jewish bring your own Sefer & Kipa. It's a beautiful synagogue...good luck!
