  • The Florence Synagogue, built in 1882, stands as an architectural gem reflecting the vibrant history of the city's Jewish community. Showcasing Moorish-inspired design, the synagogue boasts an intricately ornamented facade and sumptuous interiors. With its artistic details and imposing columns, the Florence Synagogue serves as a symbol of the rich Jewish cultural heritage in the region.
  • The Jewish Museum in Florence is a compelling testament to the rich heritage of the city's Jewish community. Housed within the historic Jewish quarter, the museum showcases a diverse collection of artifacts, documents, and artworks that chronicle the community's history. Visitors can explore exhibits detailing the cultural contributions, traditions, and challenges faced by the Jewish population in Florence. With its carefully curated displays, the Jewish Museum offers a fascinating journey through time, providing insight into the resilience and cultural significance of the Jewish community in this iconic Italian city.
  • Characterized by the white Carrara and green Prato marble, it is one of the most ancient churches in Florence and gently marks the square of the city Cathedral. Its fascinating past, combining faith, history and art, has given scholars much food for thought with regard to its meaning and connection to the Renaissance era.
  • Piazza della Repubblica, one of Florence's central and vibrant squares, is located in the vicinity of the city's ancient Jewish ghetto. The ancient ghetto, also known as "La Padovaccia," dates back to the 16th century when the Jewish community was confined to this area under the rule of Cosimo I de' Medici.
  • Considered as one of the most important sculpture museums in the world, not just Florence. Located in close proximity of the Florence Fine Art Academy, hence its name and function as a drawing laboratory for artists of any time. It houses the highest number of sculptures by Michelangelo —seven works, including the world-famous David, along with priceless masterpieces and works of art spread over two floors, and thus presenting a photograph of early-Renaissance art and its heritage.
