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

architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
