  • This beautiful porch didn't know him and yet I don't live far from Rome and Now I know it really dominated, discovered by accident while I was passing to the theatre of Marcellus. Why not promote something so beautiful? Why not make it known more tourists but also to locals?

  • The official entrance to the Jewish Ghetto in Rome. The 800 there was located the fish market. Observed the decorations and license plates on this very well maintained.

  • The portico of Octavia was created around 146 BC It consisted of a library and a Curia. It contained numerous plastic works of art, among others. The first publicly exhibited statue of a Roman woman over 30 bronze equestrian statues and a sculpted group of Heliodorus. Right behind it was a portico (Porticus Phillippi) and beside the Oratorio di Sant'Andrea dei pescivendoli. The portico had Pope Paul IV. Middle of the 16th century set up the Jewish ghetto in Rome. 990 Jews died in the course of the Jewish deportation in the night of the 15th to the 16.10.1943. in 2002 the name was awarded "16 ottobre 1943" this small place. A local panel of Dunning mentioned this incident in the addition. Behind the portico is the Catholic Chiesa di Sant'Angelo in Pescheria. Nearby is a teeny-tiny bakery "Pasticceria Boccione", which sold quite delicious kosher cakes and biscuits...

  • Old Jewish ghetto. Supposed to have been a old Roman gathering place during Augustus time. Street leads to some nice restaurants and cafes.
  • Very cool ruins in Jewish ghetto. No fee to enjoy 😊. Built by Augustus and dedicated to his sister Octavia. At one point in medieval times it was a fish market. Theatre of Marcellus ruins here as well. One of the great things about it is that there are very few tourists here. Also there are a ton of restaurants with good food right nearby.
  • This provides ground level access to the ancient Theatre and the Portico itself. But the best area to explore are the local restaurants in the old Jewish quarter which are highly recommended.
  • Hummm mehhh. Can't say much
  • Lots of rubble, but the theatre and remains of the temples next to the portico make it a great place to pass trough.
