I spent two hours visiting this beautiful synagogue and its museum, then enjoyed the sunshine on a bench in the beautiful garden. The bookshop let me down, I would have expected a bigger choice of Judaica literature. Overall a lovely place to visit - and...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.

The synagogue is a very impressive building with large dome . We had intended to go inside but there were so many armed troops and police outside with full body armour and large automated rifles we decided against.

A fabulous synagogue... one of the few remaining old ones that have withstood the test of time, that must be visited while in Florence.

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