This guided tour moves between the Jewish Ghetto and the Tiberina Island, passing through the Sant’Angelo and Ripa districts, between the squares and the streets of one of the city’s most original and evocative urban settings.
The “ Ghetto” is a fundamental place in the Roman tradition: from its establishment in 1555, under Pope Paolo IV Carafa, to the demolition in 1870.
The “Ottavia Portico”, together with Teatro di Marcello and the ruins of the temple of Apollo Sosiano, are one of the ancient archaeological sites of Rome.
Our visit will continue through the Tiber on the Tiberina island. Located in the heart of Rome and connected to the mainland by two bridges, the Fabricio bridge and the Cestio Bridge, Isola Tiberina, is famous for having the temple of Esculapio in Roman Republican times , who was the Greek god of medicine, above which today stands the church of San Bartolomeo, and still today is strongly connected to the medical sphere because there are two hospitals, the Fatebene Fratelli hospital , (builted during the sixteenth century ), and the Israelitico hospital. The island is shaped like a ship and still preserves the fragments of the travertine bow.
