    Rome - Colosseum and Roman Forum & Dinner in the Jewish Ghetto

    Breakfast at the hotel and Transfer to Colosseum

    Meet with the guide for a visit to the most significant archaeological area in the world, the Colosseum and Roman Forum. We will begin our tour from the Flavian Amphitheater, better known as the Colosseum; it is one of the most visited monuments ever, an icon of the Capitoline city. We continue to the Imperial Forums, a series of monuments and archaeological remains that were once the stage of political life. We will end the morning with a visit to Capital hill (Campidoglio), with its square.

    Dinner in the Jewish Ghetto
    The Jewish ghetto of Rome is one of the most beautiful hidden treasures of the city, delimited by the Tiber river on one side and Venice Square on the other. Today it is famous for its food, especially its plethora of kosher restaurants serving traditional Roman dishes. An example of the restaurant is Giggetto al Portico D’Ottavia, one of the oldest and most historic Roman restaurants (1923), which takes pride of place right by the ancient Portico di Ottavia originally built by Emporer Augustus.

    Transfer back to the hotel after dinner and overnight.
