This is the largest Synagogue in Rome. The synagogue is also referred to as The Jewish Museum of Rome. The exhibits at the museum are good and the details are precise. The site is a remembrance of the existence of the Jewish in old Rome. The synagogue now stands on what was once a Jewish ghetto. You’ll find a lot of Kosher restaurants and shops here. The structure is indeed impressive and the interiors are commendable.

  • Came by here as part of a Rick Steves walking tour of the Rome Jewish Ghetto. Did not go in the Museum, but Rick’s tour must be popular as the street one block away is full of active restaurants at lunchtime serving Kosher Italian food. Nearby Portico of Octavia (a historical ruin) is worthwhile.

  • Large, not exactly synagogue like building. Nevertheless, it's nice, was built at the beginning of the 20th century. High level of security (of course), check in is rather slow. The synagogue itself can't be visited on walk-in base. You have to buy a ticket to the museum ($13, no receipt, no ticket issued, they only take cash - no credit cards) and a guide would show up and takes visitors upstairs to the church according to the daily schedule. Kinda' hard to explain as the church is fairly simple. You can walk into any cathedrals in Rome without a problem. BTW: the museum is nice, pretty interesting, rather small, and lacks basic info. If you happen to be in the neighborhood it's OK to visit. Wouldn't worth a separate trip.

  • Impressive synagogue..with stunning architecture. Site also houses Jewish museum and a sephardic synagogue

  • Unfortunately, we were unable to go in to the museum, despite getting there early enough before closing. The website AND the placard by the entrance state that the last group can enter by 4:15pm, with the museum closing at 5pm. We got there at 3:30pm and the guard had already locked the gate and when we called the number on the placard to find out what's going on, it was just a series of excuses and lies. They told us they close the gates at 3:45pm and no amount of pointing out to them that both the website and placard both indicate a later time made a difference, they did not budge and dis NOT let us in. Honestly, not really sure why. That said, we were told we could wait until 5pm for evening prayer services, so we and a whole bunch of other Jewish tourists walked around the old Jewish neighborhood and returned for services. The security process of being screened and let in to the synagogue was fascist, at best. However, once inside it was MAGNIFICENT. Truly one of the most impactful services I have ever experienced. The acoustics and Italian liturgy of Jewish prayers was beautiful. The interior of the main synagogue is replete with old world splendor - exquisite stained glass windows, intricate woodwork....well worth the visit for that alone! If you're interested in seeing the museum, CALL AHEAD WELL IN ADVANCE AND MAKE CLEAR PLANS WITH WHOMEVER ANSWERS THE PHONE. GET A NAME AND MAKE SURE TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE if you want to gain access. Other than that HUGE disappointment, which is no small matter, I enjoyed the experience.

  • This is really an impressive place to see. May G-d bless this Jewish congregation.
