FLORENCE Jewish and Renaissance Tour
This tour begins at the Moorish-style Synagogue. The interior is inspiring with wood and bronze carvings, marble floors, mosaics and long stained glass windows. The Nazis used the Temple as a garage for military vehicles during WWII. Annexed to the Synagogue there is a small but meticulously arranged Jewish museum with its ritual objects dating back to the 17th Century, silver ornaments, embroideries and ancient marriage contracts.
