Teatro Marcello: This is similar to the spectacular Colosseum but has a semicircular structure and smaller size. A small theater is thus known as the Small Colosseum.
 
Portico d’Ottavia: This monument has contributed a lot in creating expressive views of the ghetto but only entrances are preserved.  During Middle Ages, this was used as a fish market.

The synagogue comprises of alluring Museum of the Jewish Community where you can witness the worship objects of the Jewish Community along with silverware and textiles that were used to adorn the ancient synagogues.
 
Via del Portico d' Ottavia: This is now the main street of the district. It was a meeting place and a reference point for the Jewish community of Rome.
 
Piazza Mattei: Appreciate a glimpse of the Renaissance era in an eccentric square. Here you can see the popular Turtle fountain.
 
Turtle Fountain: At the end of the 16th century, this fountain was built. Bernini made the turtles in 1658. Duke Mattei ordered to make this spectacular fountain in one day.
 
Palazzo Manili: This building preserves the past identity and was restored in 1468 by a rich citizen to celebrate the ancient Romans.
