About the guru MariaGrazia

I was born and raised in Rome, the Eternal City. I am a Licensed Tour Guide and I graduated in History of Rome. I love meeting people from all over the world, sharing with them my knowledge of the most important sights along with the lesser known ones. Being a Tour Guide means to me leading tours with passion and with a hint of humor.

About the tour

I will lead you to discover some historic districts of the city, where time seems to stand still. Trastevere, the area across the Tiber where once lived the Etruscans and where later many immigrants from the East also settled, mainly Jews.

Along the tour I will show to you the place where once stood what was believe to be the most ancient Jewish Synagogue in Rome.

Crossing the river we will walk through the Tiberine Island before we reach the Jewish District, once called the Ghetto. As Rome was the house of the oldest Jewish community in all of Europe, this beautiful, thriving neighborhood is as central to the history of the city as it is to the whole Jewish History.

What will we visit? :)

1. Trastevere

2. Vicolo dell'Atleta

3. Isola Tiberina

4. Portico d'Ottavia

5. Jewish Ghetto

We enjoyed the trip very much, we had a chance to discover history and district of Rome we would have never discovered ourselves. Maria guided us through Roman ghetto, its history and narrow streets with a talent of a true story teller.

MariaGrazia is very passionate and knowledgeable about this intriguing area of Rome. She talked about the significant movements through the ghetto and neighborhoods as well as more recent history, from WWII until now. Even though I was the only person on the tour, she made it very interesting and conversational. Of course, she also pointed me on the direction of delicious food. Thanks, MariaGrazia, it was very nice to share the afternoon with you learning so much!

Maria Grazia ci ha guidato in una zona di Roma che non avrei mai scoperto da sola e conosciuto in modo così approfondito. E' stato un tour istruttivo e bellissimo. Maria Grazia puntuale, accogliente ed appassionata. Consigliatissimo.

Mariagrazia ha sicuramente una profonda conoscenza della zona e della cultura ebraica, è stato estremamente interessante per me e la mia famiglia, compresi i miei bambini di 10 anni. Da consigliare.
