The synagogue in Florence is truly beautiful. It is built in a moorish style and was built in 1875. It has a fascinating history that tells also of the history of Florentine Jewry. You must get a guided tour to get the full history.

There is a small charge to enter and you need to leave...More

I would say that if you write to the director of the synagogue beforehand or head Rabbii, that would be a tremendous help. I am the producer of a youtube show and to get an interview and most importantly be able to bring my camera into the place, I wrote ahead and gained special permission. That small gesture is very much appreciated by the people there. When I arrived, they were very, very accommodating.
