Rome Jewish tours

Tours of Jewish Rome and the Rome Jewish ghetto

With all the focus on Rome's role as the capital of Christendom, many folks forget that Rome is also home to one of the oldest Jewish populations in the world outside of Israel or Egypt.

For the observant and mildly curious alike interested in getting a better sense of Rome's venerable Jewish history, wander the Jewish Ghetto neighborhood—or, better yet, try one of the tours listed below. (Note: If you are osbervant, I also have separate pages on kosher dining in Rome and kosher lodgings in Rome.)
