Jewish in Rome

From Rome our Jewish Tour starts with a visit at the Arch of Titus, an arch that commemorates the victory of emperors Vespasian and Titus in Judea in 70 A.D. which lead to the conquest of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Jewish temple there, and the triumphal procession the two held in Rome in 71 A.D.


For centuries, the Jews of Rome have always refused to pass under the Arch. When the State of Israel was born, the whole community of Rome ran up to the Forum to pass through the Arch, then with a different feeling. After the Arch of Titus, I will take you to see the Jewish Ghetto beginning with The magnificent Synagogue and the Jewish Museum inside (where you can obtain a guide for the museum). In the Ghetto we will visit the famous Cinque Scole Square and the Lorenzo Manili House with its famous date of edification “2221 ad urbe condida”. The Portico d’Ottavia and Bernini’s Turtles Fountain soon follow.


We’ll stop at the Kosher Bakery to taste the famous Pizza Giudia, and then we will go to see the Moses of Michelangelo in St. Peter in Chains Church where you can admire the funerary monument to Julius II, the Renaissance pope.
