Enjoy a small group morning walking tour among two of the most iconic districts of Rome: Trastevere, whose name means on the other side of the river “Tevere”, and the old Jewish ghetto. The tour starts from “Piazza Trilussa” in Trastevere and continues with the visit of St. Mary Basilica, one of the few remaining Byzantine churches in the city. Passing through the narrow alleys of the area, you will arrive to the Tiberine island, “Isola Tiberina”, with its two important and well known hospitals and basilicas. Crossing the river you will see a huge complex called “Portico d’Ottavia”, located in the old Jewish ghetto. During the Imperial age, the old market was housed in the Jewish district.
Walking through the small streets of the ghetto, you will discover the beauty of the Turtle Fountain, built by Gianlorenzo Bernini, maximum exponent of the baroque period, and the “S. Carlo ai Catinari” church in the real heart of the district. The tour ends at Giordano Bruno’s square, the renown “Campo dei Fiori”, where today one of the most important and crowded modern open-air market is located.
