This synagogue is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The museum inside gave a wonderful history of the Jews of Florence. It was a stop that was enjoyed by the whole family.

Classic Byzantine architectural influence. Not as ornate as cathedrals or churches but for Jewish temples it is very attractive. Considering that many others were destroyed by the nazis it was good to see it in good shape. Also, nice to be able to show the...More

If you would like to see a truly spectacular synagogue, head here. Unique in every way and definitely worth the visit. It's about a 15 minute walk from the center but worth it, in my opinion

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
