Sinagoga di Firenze e Museo ebraico, Florence
(4.3/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Well built well after most of the Florentine monuments, C is a very beautiful building in line with the monuments of Florence in front but especially a characteristic indoors, dominant Orientalism, which offers a new view of the Interior of the buildings florentin and their plasticity unmissable 6.50 for the building and the Museum entrance, a reduction seems possible with a reservation but above all very beautiful memories

  • Truly remarkable. Not only beautiful but also the oldest Italian synagogue. Situated in the heart of Florence, stands as testimony to the presence of a large Jewish community. Great lighting that makes it even more attractive. For art lovers there is also a nice Jewish Museum to visit adjacent to the synagogue.
