Piazza Cavour  is part of the palace of justice, but mainly it’s a nice calm, green park to sit and relax.

The Romans have had a tumultuous relationship with Jews for centuries, so the Synagogue on the banks of the Tiber stands as a haven with an adjacent museum. You may visit both for a fee which includes a guided visit of the synagogue.

 Behind/adjacent to the synagogue are some remnants of the ghetto where the Jews lived in Rome.

 Most of the streets are now modernized

 with small areas that remain unchanged.

 Via del Portico is the main street

 lined with shops and cafes, serving Kosher food.

 Some of the side streets showcase the modern tastes of today’s residents,

 but some things remain timeless draws, like the Turtle fountain at Piazza Mattei.
