The Synagogue, Jewish Ghetto Tiberine Island and Trastevere district
We start the tour in Piazza Venezia, true beating heart of the town, and we go towards the nearby Piazza del Gesù, historical head-quarter of the Jesuits. Overpassing Via Celsa we reach Via delle Botteghe Oscure, that takes its name from the shops which were inside the ruins of Balbo’s theatre in the Middle Ages. We cross Via Caetani, which it is sadly noted because here in 1978 it was found the corpse of the statesman Aldo Moro abducted by the Brigate Rosse. We enter the Mattei di Giove Palace, built by order of the Mattei family. In the following stop, at Piazza Mattei, you have the chance to have a sip of limpid water from the Turtles Fountain, one of the most beautiful fountains of Rome, designed by Giacomo della Porta, great fountain-maker of the papal Rome; the turtles were added by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
we will appreciate the charm of a town quite foreign to the bustle of a capital city, when crossing the narrow streets leading to the ancient Jewish Ghetto. Pope Paul IV had the area enclosed within a wall, considering inconvenient for the Christian to live in such a close contact with the Jews, thus creating the Roman Ghetto. Via della Reginella is the only spot of the Ghetto perfectly preserved. We continue the visit of the Ghetto towards the Portico of Octavia, site of the fish market. Of great interest is the Theatre of Marcellus, one of the biggest and best-preserved theatres of Ancient Rome, the church of St Angelo in Pescheria and the Synagogue, built in 1907 (visit on request).
With the guide then you will reach one of the most enchanting places of Rome, the Tiber Island, whose origins are linked to the very origins of the town. Crossing the bridges of the island we reach the medieval district of Trastevere, where we will see the ruins of the most ancient synagogue of Europe. We proceed to Sta Cecilia one of the most beautiful basilicas in Trastevere with the delicate statue of St. Cecilia by Maderno. We finish our tour reaching the enchanting square of St. Maria in Trastevere where you will admire another finest example of Mosaic art in Rome.
