Make an appointment in advance via email and be treated like a king. A stunning building with very tight security. We met with the Director of the Congregation who was magnificently friendly and accommodating. Attend services on Friday evenings.

When you pass an overwhelming security control and enter the synagogue building, you see the signs directing you to the museum. Museum is quite small, and in my opinion not quite educative and not very interesting unless you’re particularly interested in Jewish culture. Don’t miss...More

This beautiful synagogue was a surprising jewel. So worth the stop. The sanctuary was spectacular and the small museum at the top was a pleasant surprise.

The history of Florence's jewry and the interesting almost - church bulding makes the visit to the Sinagoga, a unique one. A jew, and not only a jew will find there about an hour or two of cultural enrichment

Went for a walk in this area to the north of the city - think le Marais in Paris. An absolutely amazing building, although we didn't get up close due to the heavy gates and gardens in front.

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