This is probably the most beautiful temples in have ever seen. The beauty both outside and inside takes your breath away. The condition of the temple is extraordinary. The staff are extremely friendly and answer all your questions. Only wish they would let you take pictures, but understand the security issues.

Despite the necessary security requiring purses and camera to be locked in a locker, we enjoyed our visit to this unique building

As stated in the title, the church is okay but the included museum is less than average; old fashioned, too less informative and small. If we would not have had the Firenze card than we probably would not have visited it.

A must see if you are Jewish. A should see if you are not. The structure is so beautifully maintained over 400 years, and the artifacts are priceless. The guides are knowledgable, kind and very dedicated. Mille Grazie

There is a lot of security but once you get through this it is quiet and peaceful. Interesting details on the people of the area and their plight. Museum s little hard to see as lighting is not strong. In English and Italian.

I wish I could have brought my camera in since the architecture and colors were just something else. Definitely worth a visit.

I was disappointed that you cannot take photos here in this lovely temple. There is much security with armed guards which is understandable. We ate in the only Jewish restaurant next door, Ruthies. The Venice and Rome ghettos offer more but go and see this lovely synagogue.
