It was so interesting seeing this small but lovely synagogue. It's locked, with a hand written sign posted as to when it will open for the next tour. If you come to the door at that time you can get in. When we went there...More

Jewish Italy is fascinating. Many know of the synagogues in Venice, the beautiful shuls in Florence and Rome. But the stories from Siena and Pitigliano are equally compelling. We were fortunate to stay with the Fiorentini family, who graciously showed us their shul. Compare this...More

The building is only open on certain days and times. When we were there only one person was working so se had to wait about 15 minutes for the next scheduled tour. Anna was friendly and very personable, friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the stop.

There is a guide, you will get a lot from listening to her. Special place, like the other synagogues is takes you to the past.

Small synagogue. We didn't find anything interesting to see in the small museum. Jewish travelers who enjoy touring synagogues might find this attraction interesting, but it's not one of the more interesting ones we've seen. The nearby Duomo, by the way, is one of the...More
