Tour description

Walking tour of Trastevere, Jewish Quarter and Campo de' Fiori.

An 'off the beaten path' tour through the atmospheric quarters of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto.

A chance to get away from the crowds and discover a different Rome: we will head to the Roman “Greenwich Village” (Trastevere). Complete with winding narrow streets, medieval architecture, quiet and picturesque alleys as well as with tiny and cozy restaurants and bars: this is the real Bohemian area of Rome.

Afterwards, crossing the two most ancient Roman bridges and the only island on the river – the Isola Tiberina where one of the most renowned hospitals of Rome stands - we will enter and visit the Jewish Ghetto with its complex variety of history, architecture, and tradition. It’s one of the most fascinating areas of Rome, one with the highest number of examples of medieval architecture - out of the very few - that still stand in Rome.

We will conclude our walking tour in yet another interesting area: Campo de’ Fiori, once the site of executions – the statue of Giordano Bruno, the most famous martyr of the Inquisition still dominates the square – and today one of the most bustling fruits and vegetable markets in Rome at daytime and one of Rome’s favourite places for the movida at night.

The tour will end at the site of Julius Caesar’s murder, another fascinating place “off the beaten path” of Rome, which was adjacent to the ancient Theatre of Pompey, in the area of Campo de' Fiori. The great Roman statesman was killed on the Ides of March – 15th March – in 44 B.C.
