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.

This synagogue is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The museum inside gave a wonderful history of the Jews of Florence. It was a stop that was enjoyed by the whole family.

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

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

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...More

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.

Yes. We arrived there late on a Friday evening. They said there was no entrance unless we were attending the service. We then sat and listened and found it very nice. Then we realized we had something we had planned to do... More
