Beautiful synagogue and easy to find if you have a map with directions. About 15 minute walk form Ponte Vecchio. Suggest researching Jewish history of Florence as it is helpful to understand the synagogue and city and its Jewish population. Walk though their small museum...More

An important part of florence history and so interesting. It is heartbreaking to see the stones with the lists of jews sent to concentration camps and the synagogue is beautiful. Best of all you get away from the duomo which is sadly overcrowded and walk...More
