One thing that is always exciting in Europe is when you visit an old church or synagogue. The synagogue in Florence is no exception. It is brilliant, high ceilings, designed well, a tribute to the community at the time of building. It really is a...More

The synagogue is built in moorish style, which is obvious from the first look - the first, magnificent look. The outside is pretty, lined with pink stone, but what's really breathtaking is the inside - the detailed paint and the altar really makes you sure...More
