I did this tour in May and absolutely loved it, It was a different way to view the city and gives you memories on paper in a journal to keep forever. Kelly was great, friendly, knowledgeable, and inspired you to be creative. Great adventure.

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
