One of the most striking features in Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, the Portico of Octavia was an elegant colonnaded courtyard built by Emperor Augustus around 27 BC and dedicated to his sister, Octavia. Just a few of its original 300 columns and ruins of the entrance gate still stand, but it remains a highlight of this historic neighborhood.

Guided Walking Tour of Rome's Ghetto

When you think of Rome's history and its great empire, you can't help but think that this wonderful city is the epitome of history itself. Of the old homes where thousands of Jews were isolated for centuries, almost nothing remains today. Yet, as you walk through the alleys of the ghetto, full of monuments, buildings, streets and in the eyes of some of the descendants, that inheritance will still send you vibes. Visit one of Rome's most fascinating neighbourhoods with us and discover the history of one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world. Walk with our guide through the alleys of the Ghetto and discover traces of Imperial Rome such as the Theatre of Marcellus or Portico of Octavia. We will retrace the history of the Jewish people in the city of Rome, from ancient to modern times, without ever forgetting the victims of the Holocaust, of which the "stumbling stones" (concrete cubes bearing a brass plate) fixed into the floor are a tangible testimony.
