A travel guide to Jewish Italy, from kosher restaurants and hotels in Rome, Florence, and Venice to historic synagogues and other jewish sights in Italy, as well as Jewish tours, schuls, mikvahs, and more
Italy is home to Europe's oldest Jewish population, in Rome (started by early immigrants back when ancient Judea was part of the Roman Empire).
I promise to put more info here soon. In the meantime, you can find much more about Jewish life and history in Italy at the sites in the "Links" section.
Keeping Kosher in Italy
The Italian word for "kosher" is "lecito" (which just means "legal" or "allowed by law")—though often the classic Kàsher (often spelled cascer) is used as well.
All of Italy's major cities all have at least one Kosher restaurant, and often several Kosher/Jewish bakeries, butchers, and food shop.
Same goes for kosher hotels.
