Torino and it's jewish community

Since the 15th century, Torino has been home to a unique Jewish community rooted simultaneously in the Sephardic, Ashkenazic, and Italian traditions.

Please take note that the Great Synagogue can be visited only upon booking.
Please take not that having 1024 characters at disposal to describe the tour, not every single place/site/trade that is included in the tour is stated in the itinerary.


Introduction to Torino's history and visit the city's landmark, the tallest brick building in Europe designed as a synagogue in the 19th century.
Stroll through the central streets of the ghetto area built back in 1679 and enlarged in the 18th century where it is still possible to see the original ghetto gates and interesting designer boutique and antiques stores.
Walk to San Salvario district located in walking distance from the railway station where the main Synagogue of Torino is located. Visit to the Synagogue is optional and not included in the tour. It costs Euro 50, 00 that go to the Synagogue, it is necessary to submit copy of IDs and the tour may run, subject to the availability of the only Jewish Community rep. fluent in English.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Jewish Heritage Tour with Carol. We also opted to go inside the synagogue, where we had a guide, Barok (sp?) from the Turin Jewish community, who educated us about the daily life of Jews during the ghetto period and the building of the synagogue. Carol then took us on a walk to the ghetto where she pointed out unique aspects of the buildings. Along the way she answered our questions about Turin and its history We ended at the Mole Antonelliana.
