The guide, Jade was very nice, smiling and attentive. We were able to visit two districts of Rome: 1 / La Trastevere 2 / The Jewish Ghetto By booking, between the name of the visit and the photo, I was perhaps wrongly expecting a little more historical accounts and more visits vestiges of the Jewish presence in the city over the centuries. We had too few stories and anecdotes. Also, although this information was given to us once in front of the great synagogue, not being able to enter it except with another guide was heartbreaking. Perhaps it would be necessary to include, for an additional price, the visit of this monument in the activity. What is certain is that the building is truly magnificent from the outside. As it stands, the price paid for four is still a bit high compared to what we have seen.
