The Jewish Ghetto

The Jewish Ghetto | Cultural Tours | Building Simulation 2019 Rome




An accompanied walk from Castel Sant’Angelo, way through Via dei Banchi Vecchi, Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Farnese and Piazzetta Mattei with explanation of the city. This tour will offer the opportunity to visit the Jewish Ghetto with its complex variety of history, architecture and tradition, ending with a typical dinner. The Jewish Ghetto is one of the most fascinating areas of Rome, one with the highest number of examples of Roman and Medieval architecture – out of the very few – that still stand in Rome.

Foro di Augusto Guided Tour

Foro di Cesare Guided Tour | Cultural Tours | BS 2109 Rome




While spacing on various aspects of the Roman world, the story is still anchored to the site of Augustus, creatively using the remains of the Forum to try to let the stones “speak” for themselves. Besides the faithful reconstruction of the area, with special effects of all kinds, the story focuses on the figure of Augustus, whose giant statue, over 12 meters high, dominated the area next to the temple. The spectators will be accompanied by the voice of Piero Angela and by some amazing videos and reconstructions that show places as they looked like at the time of Augustus: a thrilling representation which combines historical and scientific rigor with entertainment.

Meeting Point: Imperial Forums
Via Alessandrina, Largo Corrado Ricci Side

Foro di Cesare Guided Tour

Foro di Augusto Guided Tour | Cultural Tours | BS 2109 Rome




The visit seeks to evoke the role of the Forum in the life of the Romans but also the figure of Julius Caesar. To accomplish this great work, Caesar had to expropriate and demolish an entire neighborhood. Caesar also wanted that the new headquarters of the Roman Senate, the Curia, was built right next to his court. A building that still exists and that, through a virtual reconstruction, you can review as it appeared at that time. The story narrated by Piero Angela, accompanied by reconstructions and videos, starts from the history of the excavations made for the construction of Via dei Fori Imperiali, when an “army” of 1,500 construction workers were mobilized in an unprecedented work: razing to the ground an entire neighborhood and digging out the area until the level of ancient Rome was reached.
