Full description
Freedom is the key! Our open-top panoramic buses allow you to enjoy a spectacular view of the most iconic monuments of the Eternal City. All you have to do is jump on board and relax, listen to the audio commentary and get on and off at any of the eight stops available along the route. The 8 stops are Termini Station, Santa Maria Maggiore, Colosseum Archaeological Area, Circus Maximus - Mouth of Truth, Piazza Venezia, Vatican City, Sistine Chapel and Castel Sant'Angelo, Spanish Steps, Piazza Barberini, and Trevi Fountain. The bus ticket included in the deal will be valid for 24 hours. The bus will make eight stops and will provide you with an onboard audio commentary in 13 languages. The combination with a guided walking tour of Rome's Ghetto makes it the ideal way to pass through much of the city centre in a day. A professional guide will be waiting for you at the meeting point, which will be located next to the indicated stop of our pink buses, to show you some stunning corners of the city. Tour of the Jewish Ghetto of Rome 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. But Rome is great and generous even within itself. Of the old homes where thousands of Jews were isolated for centuries, almost nothing remains today. However, as you walk through the alleys of the ghetto, full of monuments, buildings, streets and in the eyes of some of the descendants of those who lived here in the past, you will find that inheritance still lives within them today. 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. You will also have the chance to discover the typical recipes of traditional Jewish-Roman cuisine, such as delicious artichokes “alla giudia”, or the tart with ricotta cheese and sour cherries. During this wonderful walk, you will admire the 19th-century synagogue and end your visit with the sound of the water of the Renaissance turtle fountain in Piazza Mattei.
