      It was difficult to locate the visit, which was resolved once we phoned the venue. We were advised to do the virtual tour at another location but this was initially closed. However we persevered and returned and eventually accessed the virtual tour. On completion we were given a map where we could see the places mentioned on the tour. Thus could have been so much better if we had a guide. The local signs about the jewish quarter were rusty/unreadable and we stumbled across another exhibition of the area. Could have been a far better experience...disappointed to say the least.

      Beautiful ancient synagogue with helpful and knowledgeable staff. The virtual reality feature is good, but not very sophisticated, and it would be helpful to have a narrator who knows how to pronounce Hebrew words.
