Owner description: This synagogue, one of the largest in Europe, was built between 1874 and 1882 in eclectic Moresque style by architects Marco Treves, Mariano Falcini,Vincenzo Micheli. The museo was set up on 1982 in the same building to display ritual objects, dating from XVI to XX Centuries and documentation regarding the history of the community. In the new section on 2007 was set up a room devoted to the memorial of contemporary history included the Shoa.

If you would like to see a truly spectacular synagogue, head here. Unique in every way and definitely worth the visit. It's about a 15 minute walk from the center but worth it, in my opinion

Would be an interesting spot in Leeds or Milton Keynes but in Florence? Well below average in my opinion :/

We planned on visiting this beautiful synagogue in a very untouristry part of Florence, and it did not disapoint. Beautifu outside and inside and very inspirational. Also went to the small upstairs museum, and was glad to see soldiers outside with very big guns. Untouristry and highly recommended if you have interest.

This synagogue is so beautiful and rich with history. We prayed here on Shabbat and really loved it. You can visit the museum area which is not great but is informative. They have a very nice museum shop. There are guards 24 hrs and very heavy security. The craftmanship inside is remarkable!

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
