The synagogue is impressive both inside and out. It costs €6.50 to enter. I am still baffled why I had to check my SLR camera, but my point and shoot and phone were both fine to use without flash. The synagogue is in the Sephardic...More

Much smaller dome than the Cathedral purposely made not as large. The municipality did not want a dome to compete with the Duomo. Damaged by the Nazis during the war, and rebuilt, this is a beautiful synagogue.

It is worth arranging for a tour either through the synagogue or through Giovanna Bossi Rosenfeld's Florence Jewish Tours to best understand the events that happened here and to understand the history of Jews in Florence. The structure itself is beautifully restored and worth visiting....More

The interior of this synagogue is stunning. The moorish architecture style combined with the elaborately decorated interior make this a must see.

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.
