Museo Ebraico di Roma
Lonely Planet review for Museo Ebraico di Roma
The historical, cultural and artistic heritage of Rome’s Jewish community is chronicled in this small but engrossing museum. Housed in the city’s early 20th-century synagogue, Europe’s second largest, it presents harrowing reminders of the hardships experienced by the city’s Jewry. Exhibits include copies of Pope Paul IV’s papal bull confining the Jews to the ghetto and relics from the Nazi concentration camps.
You can also book one-hour guided walking tours of the Ghetto (adult/reduced €8/5) at the museum.
