The tour begins with an introduction to the history of Florence at the Synagogue and the adjacent Jewish Museum. Built in 1882, the Synagogue is considered one of the most beautiful examples of exotic Moorish style architecture with its extraordinary green dome, the only one in Florence covered with copper. Its inspiring interior features wood and bronze carvings, marble floors, mosaics and large stained glass windows.
Then enjoy a walking tour of Florence to discover the unexpected presence of Jewish history from the XV to the XX Centuries in some of the city's most famous landmarks: the Baptistery's Golden Door, Piazza della Repubblica where the ghetto was located, Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio area, and finally Via dei Giudei, site of the first Jewish settlement.
Entry fees are additional and are to be paid by the client at the site.
