Sinagoga di Firenze e Museo ebraico, Florence

(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
One of the largest synagogues in Europe, Sinagoga di Firenze e Museo ebraico was built between 1874 and 1882, just after the emancipation of the Italian Jews in 1861. Unique in its Moorish style, the cupola, which is covered in green copper, stands out in the skyline of the city. Inside, walk through the filtered light that passes through the stained-glass windows, and admire the murals that grace the walls. Visit the museum, which holds many objects and photos documenting the history of Florence's Jewish community. Guided tours are available, but make sure to reserve ahead of time.

  • Sin, we passed on Saturday and everything was closed, we saw it from the outside. Definitely deserves a visit ...

  • Visit a synagogue also means getting into a spiritual dimension a little different from that of the absolute lack of cattolici....la iconography is already weird and confusing ... especially after visiting the many Florentine churches. But, in any event, the sobriety of the interior spaces, strictly delineated associated to furniture and flooring, leaving a strong feeling of spirituality and grandeur

  • an atmosphere, a magic ... amazing! with 7 € visiting the synagogue, and the interesting museum about their culture. If nothing else is an original place, that we're not exactly accustomed, and beautiful scenery of Renaissance Florence, is a gem. to visit!
