The Capitoline Museum and the Jewish Ghetto

tour description

This tour will make you discover the “sense” of Rome!

The Capitoline Hill was one of the Seven Hills upon which Rome was founded. Today you can enjoy a visit to the Capitoline Museums, one of the “must see” museums in Rome located inside 3 palaces that surround the square conceived by Michelangelo.

Let’s discover Rome’s stateliness in its magnificent Roman sculptures which constitutes the oldest public collection of art in the whole world and dates back to 1471. 

The Capitoline Museums house a vast collection of ancient Roman, Greek and even Egyptian statues, reliefs, vases, sarcophagi, mosaics, busts and artifacts of great interest.
After the unforgettable view of the Roman forum from the Tabularium, let’s reach the Jewish area to discover its hidden treasures. The Jewish Ghetto tells us the overall history of Europe's longest surviving Jewish community dating back to the 3rd century BC.
Once in the Ghetto you will be charmed by its attractive cafes, shops, crafts stores, kosher restaurants and Jewish-owned businesses.
The stops to admire the monumental Synagogue, the fascinating Portico of Octavia, and the Theater of Marcellus will make us live the ancient and medieval life of both Jewish and Christians along the river Tiber.
