This was our second visit to this wonderful museum. I have to admit that I had never been aware that it existed and not being someone who buys Ferragamo shoes, as beautiful as they certainly are, I hadn't ever opened the doors of the Ferragamo shop. How silly was I!! The museum, downstairs to the left is well worth a... More

I paid 18 euros for my daughters and I (6 euros each) expecting to see a museum of Ferragamo shoes. Instead, there was one wall of old shoes (organized by decades) and the rest of the museum was a random collection of art and some history about the building. We were in and out in under 15 minutes and were... More

What a terrible experience! I had visited this little museum out of chance years back and I remember being so lovely and full of beautiful Ferragamo's shoes. This time I took a friend to see it and guess what? Entrance fee €6 each, free in the past, and Mr Ferragamo's shoes had almost vanished! A very small sample in one... More

As a shoe addict I had to visit the museum, the home of Salvatore Ferragamo. Although there was a whole wall of shoes, and lasts of famous Hollywood stars, I was expecting there to be more about his shoe collections. The museum on the whole was about the history of the amazing building. It was beautifully presented.

When we descended the stairs and paid we thought the display of hundreds of shoes was all there was to it. The shoes are terrific enough and my daughter and I had a great time choosing our favourites from each row. There was a display of shoe lasts for famous people and I was thrilled to see those of Audrey... More

Note: this is not a shoe/ bag museum! It has a small section of shoes/ equipment used for making shoes. Rest of the museum is dedicated to other paintings, which has no relevance to the brand. Not value for money even though the entry only cost €6. Give it a miss. As a suggestion to staff: Just make it solely... More

I really love Ferragamo's design and how he made it as a shoe designer. I like the story and the most beautiful part is his shoes!! The are timeless and so beautiful.

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

For a shoe lover, this was more than an opportunity to pay homage to a great shoemaker. Beyond a limited display about the master, the palacial home holds a number of artistic masterpieces as well.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
