ITINERARY

     Portico di Ottavia and Teatro Marcello

Rome has many hidden secrets, which make both children and adults curious, like the ancient fish stone. If you were to arrive here at night, you would see only a part of the illuminated portico…can anyone guess why?

Here you will see the remains of the temple dedicated by Emperor Augustus to his sister, while the Marcellus Theatre, very well preserved and now used as a dwelling, was dedicated to the son of Octavia.

    Piazza Mattei and the Fontana delle Tartarughe

Piazza Mattei was in the 16th century, and still is today, an extremely elegant courtyard with its famous Fountain of Turtles.  A staircase leads to a refined house with a double arched portico.

     The Sinagoga

It is a 20th century building, the very symbol of the Jewish Ghetto and includes all sorts of ornaments that tell the story of Jewish culture in ancient Rome. The restaurants in this place preserve the heritage of kosher cuisine, where biblical rules still dictate the way food is prepared.

     Tiberina Island and Santa Maria a Trastevere

With your guide you will cross the Tiber Island – home of the Jewish Hospital and the ancient Synagogue Tower. Through the narrow and colourful streets of Trastevere, you will reach the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, begun around 1130 A.D., with wonderful mosaics and massive Ionic columns.
