  • Located in the Trastevere area, the "Alley back of Attreta" is a very tasteful path sandwiched between dense buildings. I walked to the south while strolling from Pisinula Square, and it is an alley connecting Sarmi Street and Genovaj Street in the area. A certain part in the middle of the narrow alley is width a little, and there is a place of up-down, and it becomes a small staircase there after half of width becomes a slope, and the other half is a little down slope, There is a change in the narrow alley. There is now a synagogue next to the Marlis Theatre on the other side of the Tiber River, but the old synagogue before moving there is still around the width in the back alley of this attorita. The pillars that support the arch in the second part of the old house in the Middle Ages are inscribed with Hebrew characters. And, this House seems to be a famous shop which is now a Ristorante. This "Spirito di Vino" is not the name of the Ristorante, but it seems that the cellar in the cellar is also the remains of the synagogue and can be visited. In addition, I heard that ancient marble statues were found here and are now housed in the Vatican Museum. By all means, I wanted to eat at this Ristorante once. The word of mouth about taste seems to be various pros and cons.

  • Official candidate "most picturesque alley in the world", the athlete's Alley combines all the charm of a historical stratification Trasteverine side streets still visible (look good buildings) plus a medieval house incredibly well stored which in turn becomes the bearer of a mystery thanks to written in Hebrew on it, and reminds us that the lane was probably Jewish community Headquarters from even before they spoke of the rione Sant'Angelo. But even if you entered without any information, the alley invites the same, because it's really nice in a beautiful area (near the picturesque square of Santa Cecilia). The medieval House has a charm that is hard to find in other parts of Rome. I dare say, among the things worth seeing in Trastevere, and the city in General.

  • In Rome, especially in trastevere alleys also have their own particular charm; you want to the feel of real life, albeit here in presence of moneyed tourists living there due to the care that residents are kept in the architecture, the cobbled in travertine, plants and Creepers present, in not rare vestiges of an ancient past, often of archaeological value. Here is present and to admire the most beautiful medieval house of Rome, with its arcaded loggia on columns, where probably was located the ancient synagogue. In support of this fact, we can see Hebrew characters inscribed on the marble of the center column. Right here, in fact, settled, in the years before the establishment of the ghetto, the first group of Jews here were the first synagogue and the Palm trees that grow well in large number in the alley, the symbolic plant of peace associated with the place of Jewish worship, which gave the first name to the alley. The place takes its name from the 19th century still Greek statue of an athlete, perhaps copying from Lysippos placed first at the baths of Agrippa, who can be admired today in the Vatican museums.
