AREA-OLD JEWISH GHETTO – PANTHEON – TEATRO MARCELLO
The Roman Ghetto or Ghetto of Rome was a Jewish ghetto established on on 14th July 1555, as a result of Pope Paul IV’s Papal bull, and is the oldest one in Western Europe. The bull required the Jews of Rome, which existed as a community since before Christian times, to live in the ghetto, where they amounted to the 80% of the population.
This area is sandwiched between the Riverside and the Piazza di Torre Argentina, so named by Johann Burchard (1445 - 1506), master of ceremonies of five popes form 1483, who owned the land in the area on the remains of the Theatre of Pompey and the Pantheon, one of the Ancient World’s best preserved monuments.
Today the Ghetto is a vibrant quarter packed with many shops, supermarkets, gyms, cafés and restaurants, including a number of Kosher establishments.
This is truly Rome’s most characteristic and exciting area, with an uncompromising choice of monuments within walking distance. Shop at the daily open market of Campo de’Fiori or dine out in the Historic Jewish Quarter, walk to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the lively Trastevere Quarter which is just a five minutes across the foot bridge. Also close to the Historic Center’s main transport hub in Largo Argentina, with express buses to Termini and tram service directly to the Trastevere station and on-going connections to the Airport. Truly an excellent location and an oasis of quiet and beauty from which to explore Rome's multilayered historical district.
The Ghetto area incorporates the Via del Portico d'Ottavia, seat of the ancient Fish Market, (one of the trade’s Jews were allowed to practice) and boards the Theatre of Marcellus, whose construction was planned by Julius Caesar as a theater, with the intent to rival the Theatre of Pompey in Campo Marzio, inaugurated in 13 B.C. The Theatre of Marcellus is one of the oldest buildings of Ancient Rome and could accommodate about 20,000 spectators.
