I stopped in with a group of students interested in fashion and advertising and was totally disappointed. The display of Ferragamo shoes, including the tools on how Salvatore Ferragamo made his shoes, and the history of Salvatore Ferragamo was interesting. The rest of the displays in the museum were a random collection of items with of some historical interest, some... More

A small museum under the shop. A bit about his life and a display of his shoe designs with some famous shoes in a display cabinet. Some lasts on display used for famous feet. Collection of painting and sculptures. Showing past views and use of the building

This 6 euro museum houses exactly one small room dedicated to the work of Mr Ferragamo and the rest are somewhat interesting but unrelated exhibits relating to the building itself, as well as several art pieces. This was absolutely not worth the cost of admission and I recommend going into an actual Ferragamo store to get the same experience for... More

It was interesting, but I guess I expected more about the shoes. Loved seeing all the styles over the years as well as the celebrities for forms (all signed by them, including Michael Jordan!). Wished there had been more about the fashions.

Stunning look into the life and work of the master of shoe artistry. Worth the 6 Euros to just gawk at the hundreds of pairs of amazing shoes - from the beginning of Ferragamo. The history of the building through all the centuries and decades is fascinating. The shoe lasts of the stars all the way back to Mary Pickford... More

Very interesting collection of shoes but very limited. Just wondering why the Giant clock at the entrance is counterclockwise.

The museum is located at the Palazzo Spini's underground (Dungeon). At first we're amazed since the collections of shoes on display were absolutely elegant and interesting. But as we went further inside the museum, most of the collections were irrelevant on Salvatore Ferragamo's work. In summary, the shoes on display are just a tiny portion of IMELDA MARCOS shoe collections.... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
