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 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...More

Gorgeous structure and lovely pieces inside. For someone with only a passing interest, this can be a quick visit. For someone more involved, take your time.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Probably. They are very welcoming to visitors. I would write ahead to make certain you have a reservation. The sinogoga is an amazing place.
