Discovering the history and traditions of the Jewish community in Trieste
The journey to discover the history and traditions of the Jewish community starts in Piazza Unità d’Italia and continues in the area of the old Jewish ghetto, full of antique and second-hand shops.
From here, the visit continues at the “Carlo and Vera Wagner” Museum of the Jewish Community, which holds Jewish ritual objects of art, documents and books that record Jewish life in Trieste and is one of the most important Jewish heritage collections in Italy.
After the visit, you will walk to Via San Nicolò to see the Libreria Antiquaria (Antique Bookshop), once managed by poet and novelist Umberto Saba, whose shelves still house many rare and precious books.
You will walk past the historical Patisserie “La Bomboniera”, founded by the Jewish-Hungarian Eppinger family. The tour ends at Trieste’s Synagogue, built at the beginning of the 20th century, an imposing building that still has significant importance across Europe.
The visits to the Synagogue and the Jewish Museum cannot be arranged on Fridays and Saturdays, nor during religious festivals.
On request, the guided tour can also include the Jewish Cemetery, where members of Trieste’s most influential Jewish families are buried, and Risiera di San Sabba, the only extermination camp in Italy.
