Roman Ghetto Tour & Food Experience
This is your chance for you and a friend to explore the fascinating Roman Ghetto and enjoy some typical Jewish-Roman dishes in one of the best kosher restaurants in the district.
The Jewish ghetto of Rome is one of the most beautiful hidden treasures of the city. Visiting this small neighborhood, delimited by the Tiber one one side and by Venice Square on the other, is not only a cultural and religious experience, due to the Synagoghe and the Jewish museum, but also culinary, thanks to the many typical restaurants scattered throughout the ghetto.
And right in the ghetto, a neighborhood full of history, where you find the Jewish Museum of Rome, a little gem housed in the complex of the Great Synagogue, opened in 1960 to preserve the testimonies of the Jewish Community of Rome.
In this district you can try authentic traditional Jewish-Roman dishes with many kosher establishments to choose from.

- Walking tour on the discovery of the ancient Roman Ghetto, today the Jewish Quarter
- Entrance and guided tour of the rooms of the Jewish Museum of Rome
- Entrance and guided tour of the Great Synagogue (Tempio Maggiore)
- Entrance and guided tour of the Spanish Synagogue (only accessible on a private tour)

The foundation contributes to the costs of running the Jewish School of Milan and promotes excellence in training and cultural identity inspired by the principles of Judaism, always in line with the times.
Projects financed by the foundation are chosen from those presented by entities, teachers or educational managers through a precise procedure established in conjunction with the foundation itself and the Jewish community of Milan.
The project is evaluated for efficiency and conformity to regulations and, if approved, is funded. For all projects and particularly those that have a long-term duration, feedback is requested from the applicant in order to share the results with the donators.
In 2015, we raised 306,200 euro to contribute to the projects. Furthermore, for the “eight per thousand” projects, we obtained the approval and related funding of 14,000 euro from the UCEI, the Italian Jewish Community Union, for a teacher training project to use the Feuerstein Method in educational activities.
