Tempio Maggiore Di Roma Reviews & Ratings
Well worth visiting. Interesting museum and guided tour. The Synagogue is an imposing and attractive building. It is important that there is still an active Jewish community in Rome and this building is at its centre.
Grand historic synagogue with very interesting (but not large) museum of Italian Jewish heritage and history.
The synagogue is a really cool building with a very interesting history. The inside is as breathtaking as almost any duomo/cathedral in Italy (think gold leaf and marble everywhere). While walking to the building make sure to check out the plaques on the ground outside apartment buildings that show from where Jews in the Holocaust were taken. If you want to go for services, they are very strict about entrance and will ask questions about your Jewish background and even specifics like "what was your bar mitzvah portion?" Regardless, I think it's somewhere worth checking out if you have the time.
Impressive synagogue with very interesting history. The architecture and decoration is impressive and very different. Definitely worth a visit. The museum is not very interesting but a good pass time until the guided tour.
The most magnificent shul I’ve ever seen.! Also thank you to micol from Rome ghetto tours for an enlightening experience !
