Guided Tour: The Jewish Tradition in Florence

guided tour Jewis tradition in Florence


The Jewish world doesn’t feature in the traditional image of the capital town of Tuscany, which is instead renowned as the cradle of the Renaissance, the city of Dante and Michelangelo. Yet, precisely in the 15th century - il Quattrocento – one of the periods of maximum splendor in the history of the city - a Jewish community settled in Florence, becoming a continuous element of its life and giving important cultural contribution.


The guided tour, a walk through the city center of Florence, has the purpose to explain the local facts and history of the Jewish community, along with notions on Judaism. It will include the beautiful 19th century Synagogue and its museum. The Synagogue of Florence was inaugurated in 1882, no longer after the emancipation of the Italian Jews which was proclaimed in 1861 when the Kingdom of Italy was established. The Florence synagogue is one of Europe’s finest examples of a blend of the exotic Moorish style with Arabic and Byzantine elements. Book a walking tour of Florence with us!



 Duration:
 The duration of the guided tour is approximately three hours long and includes the visit of the Synagogue, subject to entrance fee, not included in the tour rate.
