2. The hidden side of Rome

The lovely quarter of Trastevere that is located on the other side of the Tiber gives you, along with the Tiber Island and the Jewish ghetto, a different view on the eternal city. The tour brings you from the S. Maria in Trastevere church (one of Rome’s most beloved churches with astonishing mosaics) across Piazza Trilussa and the Ponte Sisto to the other side of the river, where you will visit the Tiber island and the Jewish Ghetto. Nearby, next to the theatre of Marcellus, the remains of three Roman temples (3th-2th century B.C.) are still visible in the walls of the S. Nicola in Carcere church. And not only: by accessing the undergrounds, we will walk between their fundaments…
