You take a self-guided tour through this beautiful synagogue that survived the Nazis occupation. Walking around the synagogue you can appreciate the long history of the Jews of Florence and their wish to have a synagogue befitting their success in Italy. Unfortunately no pictures may...More

You do not have to be Jewish to visit this beautiful building, it is protected by the army which was a little unnerving. Lots of Jewish exhibits as expected and someone on hand to explain if you needed help. A memorial in the garden for...More

If you need a kosher restaurant-- there are several near the synagogue. It's a a beautiful building-- and still has pockmarks from WWII. Just beyond the synagogue is a wonderful market place with some excellent restaurants

Beautiful synagogue with a small museum on upper floors. Security very tight--a bit tough if you are claustrophobic--you have to leave everything in lockers and pass through double glass doors that lock behind and in front of you for a few seconds or even minutes...More

I toured this synagogue with friends while I was in Florence on a business trip. The guided tour was great as the tour leader (a member of the synagogue) was very knowledgeable. The synagogue is beautiful, historic, and a little sad because of the history...More

Just show up. Investigate when there is a scheduled tour talk. You will learn that this is an important part of Italian history and perhaps why it was not destroyed by the Nazis. It was a flood in November 1966? when city centre in Florence...More

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.
