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.

My husband and I had visited before , but had not attended a service there. This year we did on the first night of Yom Kippur. A very special place indeed!

We visited this beautiful synagogue and spent more than two hours exploring the beautiful architecture and museum! We had a guided tour and the additional insights were very beneficial. The building is absolutely beautiful with finishings that are in the Sephardi and Moorish styles.

For me as jew was very emotional to see this place and his magnitude, the archs, the green Dome, and the stage.

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.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

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