situated near Chiesa di Santa Croce, the dome of the Sinaloa is part of the Firenze skyline. The interior is as beautiful as the exterior, the art collection in the museum is extraordinary. You must pay an entrance fee, but definitely worth a visit!

I had never been in a synagogue before. I went with a friend and she and the very helpful guide explained everything to me. The museum upstairs was very informative. It is a beautiful building.

There is a charge of €6 to go in, but no photographs are allowed , so on this occasion we passed on that, would have been different if photos were permitted.

A lovely change from all of the churches, duomos and cathedrals. Sinagoga di Firenze e Museo ebraico (the Great Synagogue of Florence) is one of the more gorgeous synagogues I have ever seen. The building is beautiful on both the inside and out, with rich...More

Their domes are beatifully designed and its interior, at least for me, it's even better. Much better experience than the sinagoga in Rome, close to the Tiber.

This awesome place should be visited by all means, regardless of your religious affiliation. At a 10-minute walk from the center of the old town, this place should not be missed. The guidebook we used, with over 60 pages on Florence's different sites, said nothing...More

This is the sinagoga You would like to see visiting Florence. Entering you can feel the atmosphere of centuries. The religion that you will notice inside and the artworks are very special. Take some time, 1 hour could do for a good first impression.

Yet another building charging to enter at 6 euros 50 cents, so only took photos from the outside. A stunning building you can just about see from the roadside due to fencing.

Unless you are Jewish and feel compelled to say you were there, don't waste your time. it is out of the way, dark and dreary.

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.
