In comparison to other ticketed attractions in rome, this would easily be the poorest.a very short visit to the synagogue,a lack of engagement by staff, and unable to stroll around at ones bidding. Artifacts in museum interesting but not gob smacking. Had been so keen to go, such a letdown.

Visited the museum with audioguide - really interesting rooms well-presented. Also had a tour of the synagogue itself. Later my husband and I ate lunch at one of the kosher restaurants on an adjacent street. We had chicken soup and he also had tortellini but no cheese! I participated in a walking tour of the ghetto area with a small... More

This is a good small informative museum of Jewish life. It is located in the basement of the Great Synagogue. We enjoyed the exhibits. An important aspect here is that they give free tours of the Great synagogue. They also give quite inexpensive yet extremely informative walking tours of the ghetto.

The Jewish Museum and synagogue are a wonderful collection of artefacts and a very different place of worship to the myriad of churches in Rome. The community has been here for over 2000 years and the history is fascinating. Hard to recommend this strongly enough.

This was one of the most meaningful parts of our visit to Rome. The museum depicts Jewish community in Rome which dates back to the 2nd century B.C It was constructed after the unification of Italy in 1870 at which time the ghetto was finally abolished after hundreds of years. The museum is connected to The Great Synagogue which can... More

The building was constructed adjacent to the ancient ghetto and along the Tiber River. Building started in 1901 and the Synagogue opened in 1904. Services are conducted in the "orthodox" tradition. The sanctuary is resplendent, sparkling with golden adornments, marble columns and mosaics. Candelabra, menorah and other symbols of the faith abound, attesting to the successful integration of he Jews... More

We made our way to the Temple because my husband wanted to see the Jewish Ghetto of Rome. This temple is absolutely stunning with a rainbow tiled ceiling and a museum in the basement offering a small tour. There are also letters of Italian Jews from concentration camps and pictures. Its both lovely and very sad. I never knew Italy... More

This is the most impressive synagogue I have ever seen! It starts with an explanation about the synagogue and its history by a guide. Then you go into the small museum underneath. There is interesting information and artifacts about the Roman Jewish community. Can be done in an hour to hour and a half.

This is a wonderful museum that is housed in a synagogue. We paid for a private tour of the museum and surrounding Jewish ghetto/neighborhood and it was worth every penny. My 10-year old son joined us and had a great experience. I highly recommend this museum.

Staying in Ghetto

Neighbourhood Profile
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
