Often considered Italy's "Little Jerusalem," Pitigliano is an excellent place to dive into Italo-Jewish history, and there is perhaps no better starting point than Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano. The gold-and-white synagogue was built in 1598 and boasts carved pews, a wooden pulpit, and a Holy Ark. Though the synagogue is rarely used today, you can still check out the venues for the ritual bath, the striking of unleavened bread, and the kosher butcher and winery. Surrounding the synagogue is the ghetto, where you can find a labyrinth of alleys, winding staircases, small squares, and shops. This historical ghetto served as the center of the Jewish community in Pitigliano for many centuries, and is a charming place to lose yourself in today.

  • Frankly, I'm disappointed, Pitigliano is a beautiful but I would not say the same of the ghetto and the synagogue. A place important from an historical point of view, but the 5 € of expense of the ticket are not rewarded by visit I found uninteresting because to see there remained very little. The synagogue but has very little history having been recently renovated.

  • You can visit the Jewish ghetto of Pitiliano where, the synagogue is still in use. Very interesting Museum which shows the places and the way of life of this community.

  • Nice to visit while you are in Pitigliano, it makes a tour of these venues underground Etruscan reused by the Jewish community. the synagogue itself is not particularly noteworthy, was rebuilt recently.
