One of the most beautiful and unique synagogues I have seen.
You should also see the exhibition in the museum and learn about Jewish culture

The synagogue of Florence is the largest Jewish temple in Italy with its dome prominently positioned in the Florentine skyline. Not too many visitors so the place is quiet and solemn. The museum in the second floor gallery is small.

The security is heavy. Aside from being guarded by Italian paratroopers you have to check in your bags, electronics, including your camera although photography is permitted by way of smart phone.

This synagogue is a testament to the size and strength of the Jewish community that existed in the 1800's here in Florence. The sheer
Size and detail shows the the deep pride that the he community had. There is a small museum of many books, sidurim,scrolls and Paraphernalia. Remember to bring some clothing to cover your upper body when in the temple. Otherwise you won't be permitted entry.

Beautiful, well-preserved synagogue (repaired after the flood). Very modest museum as part of the facility.
