Highly recommend. Shop in the Synagogue was also nice. We bought some beautiful judaica. Lots of security which is par for the course. Nice little kosher restaurant nearby as well.

It took a long time to get through security. There was no tour. It was kind of depressing. Compared to the Synagogue tour in Rome, which was fantasic, it was nothing. I wish we had skipped it.

A huge synagogue, with a bitter history. It is not by chance, that almost in every synagogues there are exhibtions about the past. Here you can even watch a film about the history of the jews in Florence. Informative and nice synagogue.

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