As Jews, it was important to us to be this beautiful synagogue. There are security measures, including armed soldiers, at the front entrance and elsewhere outside. Sadly necessary in these days.

Visited on a Sunday morning, very quiet. If you are not Jewish please note you cannot enter on Saturdays (Sabbath, not because you aren't Jewish!) Stunning building outside, wonderful inside. Very good artefacts and a fascinating film about Florence's Jewish history.

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.

Classic Byzantine architectural influence. Not as ornate as cathedrals or churches but for Jewish temples it is very attractive. Considering that many others were destroyed by the nazis it was good to see it in good shape. Also, nice to be able to show the...More
