1 Jewish Tour 1 Valid all year round A fascinating tour, full of history and culture, across the cosmopolitan city of Amedeo Modigliani. Livorno: a city filled with charm, art, history and life. Price from 590,00 per person The price of transfer and guide can be cheaper depending on number of persons. - Meeting with tourist guide of Livorno at 9 a.m. at Piazza Grande next to the famous pastry Dolly. Piazza Grande, the main square of Livorno was designed by Buontalenti under the power of the Medici family. The splendour of this square was taken as an example for Grand Place Royale in Paris and Covent Garden in London, designed by Inigio Jones. - From Piazza Grande we will walk to the New Synagogue. The old Synagogue was built in 1603, it was designed by Claudio Cogorano and Alessandro Pieroni. It was enlarged in the beginning of the 20th century. The synagogue was the second largest after the one in Amsterdam, and considered the most beautiful in Europe. It was totally destroyed during the Second World War and rebuilt in 1962 by architect Angelo Castro from Rome. He was inspired by the tent of the desert in memory of the Exodus. The Tebà is built in marble, found in the ruins of the old synagogue. The building next to the synagogue was also designed by Angelo Castro. It is connected to the synagogue by an underground passage and it houses the Archive and the offices of the community. The Oratory Lampronti is used for several services during the winter, replacing the Tempio Maggiore during Pesah-Succoth. - Afterwards the Synagogue we will visit the Central Market, also called Vettovaglie. The Central Market, designed by engineer Badaloni, is one of the oldest and one of the most beautiful in Europe. Here we can find the mixed culture of Livorno. - Continuing our walk we will reach Via Roma, 38, the birthplace of one of the most famous artist in the world: Amedeo Modigliani. He was a Jew and he studied in Livorno where he received the celebration bar mitzvah. In his memory we will taste an aperitif of absinthe or pastis, that is very difficult to find elsewhere. We will enjoy the house, where a famous cook will explain the history of Cacciucco and the outstanding use of tomato, imported to Livorno by Sephardic Jews. - From here we will go and visit the Jewish Museum at the Oratorio Martini, in a neoclassical building turned into museum in Some of the many decorations that originally ornated the first synagogue are to be found here. Unfortunately the oldest and most precious pieces have disappeared, but some of the ones kept here at the museum show us the high quality of workmanship

2 which is hard to find elsewhere. For example, there is a crown dated 1636 and some of the decorations from the 17th century. At the museum the guide will explain a fascinating history of Jewish Symbology while you will be able to try out some of the typical Jewish Rochester and wine from Livorno Province hills. - We will have lunch either in one of the local restaurants with kasher or in a typical jewish restaurant, with the traditional plate of Livorno: Cacciucco. - The tour will end in the afternoon with a visit at the Monumental Jewish Cemetery in Livorno, where some of the most illustrious rabbis are buried such as Rav Elia Benamozegh z.l., Rav Haim Joseph David Azulai (HIDA) z.l.; Rav Coriat; Rav Costa; Isaac Nunes Alvarenga; Leudà Coriat. Amongst the tombs you can find the ones of Nissim s., of David lst. and of the Rosselli family, as well as the private chapel owned by the Attias family.

The canals are situated in the Venice District, that is a part of Livorno, together with bridges and narrow streets, is similar to the real city Venice.
