A huge synagogue, with a bitter history. It is not by chance, that almost in every synagogues there are exhibtions about the past. Here you can even watch a film about the history of the jews in Florence. Informative and nice synagogue.

It’s one of the most beautiful synagogues I’ve ever seen. Very unique Moorish architecture. It was mostly empty when I went so it’s a great place to escape the hoards of tourists. So glad I stumbled on to it.

This domed synagogue takes its place among the beautiful cathedrals of Florence. But this building has a darker past. Built shortly after the emancipation of Jews from their ghetto in the 1860s, this house of worship was built to be a Jewish building worthy of...More

A warm welcome by everyone helping in the synagogue. A most impressive building, tall, majestic, beautiful. You don't have to be religious to appreciate the sanctity of this fine building. The museum, mostly on the second floor (lift available) showed one of the best videos...More

While the Museum was nice, it paled in comparison to the magnificent Synagogue and sanctuary. I am not aware of any guided tours but would love to do that at some point if at all possible.

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

Didn't mind security at all - I never do - safety first. But front desk and scarce personnel made this Synagogue feel much less "welcoming" than in Rome and Siena. The museum has nice exhibits and tells a story. The sanctuary is very beautiful and...More

First of all: the map here on TA has the wrong street address for the Synagogue -- there are two streets with similar names, and the Synagogue is closer to the center than shows up on one of the TA maps. This is a truly...More

Probably. They are very welcoming to visitors. I would write ahead to make certain you have a reservation. The sinogoga is an amazing place.
