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

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

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

This museum was disappointing. I expected a museum representing S.Ferragamo and his amazing shoes, instead it was a museum about the building and surrounds (Palazzo Spini Feroni). There is a wall of shoe samples, which is impressive. This can be seen before you hand over the 6 Euro entry. The rest of the museum has nothing about his shoes. An... More

Its not really a Ferragamo museum, its more Palazzo Spini Feroni museum. If they had just called it that, I would have given it 3. Certainly not worth 6 euros and honestly, you see more shoes at the store, only two small walls at the museum. Cannot recommend UNLESS you want to know about the palazzo itself.

OK. We love Ferragamo. My wife has dozens of pair. I own many too. So we were hoping to see a museum such as the Gucci of Ferragamo products over time. No such luck. Instead there is a wall of shoe models from the 1950's to maybe 1980. And there is an exhibit of shoe molds for about three dozen... More

My daughter and I went here and were amazed at the reasonable cost and the amount to see. It does, I admit, seem a little random, but all the same worth a visit fir 3€ each. Two walls full of beautiful shoes on lasts, all classics to be drooled over, then a lot more stuff in the painting and history... 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.
