Added to these renowned painted works, the museum hosts the splendid and equally famous sculptures of Bernini, including his "David", Canova's reclining "Paolina Borghese", Tiziano's "Amor Sacro e Amor Profano", Caravaggio's "David con la testa di Golia", and Rubens' "Pietà".

The Jewish presence in Rome is very old: Roman Jews have been living in this part of Rome for 22 centuries, giving birth to the only Jewish community to be present always in the same place before the Diaspora.
In 1555, Pope Paul IV created the Roman Ghetto and issued papal bull "Cum nimis absurdum", forcing Jews to live in a specified area. After the visit of the Ghetto, the tour goes on with the sacred area of Largo Argentina, that hosts four Republican Roman temples, and the remains of Pompey's Theater.
Then you will be guided through Piazza Campo dei Fiori. In Ancient Rome this area was unused space between Pompey's Theatre and the flood-prone Tiber. The tour ends with the visit of Piazza Farnese.

Price: € 45,00 per person (including guide, English speaking guide, bus and monument entrance fee).
