My second time going and the exhibition I most recently saw (fashion and art) was absolutely incredible and really made you appreciate the true art form of fashion. The most beautifully and creatively curated museum I've ever been to however the two staff members on the front desk were rude and snooty. If it wasn't for them this would have... More

This is located just below the Ferragoamo store! We took a look at all the interesting shoes and art work displayed here! Worth a quick and short visit!

Anyone who's a fan of shoes must visit the museum. It's part of the store itself, at the bottom. It's nice and can be covered in a span of few minutes and the history of the great designer's legacy is a must see.

As someone has commented about this being closed I can confirm straight off that it has now reopened! Located in the cellars below ther Salvatore Ferragamo store, this is a weird and wonderful display of fashion from the sublime to the ridiculous. Oddly it has very little of Ferragamo's own work apart from a collection of shoes and lasts in... More

The Museo Salvatore Ferragamo is the museum of the famous shoe maker. Located in the Via dei Tornabuoni it sits in the basement of the shoe store. A nice find with a huge display of shoes. Interesting

At the moment the collection seems to be rearranged or changed, when we went there last week, it was closed. However the shop is also worth a visit, be however prepared to a close surveillance by the ladies working there...

The museum is in the basement of the shop and there was a small entrance fee as I recal. The shoe stock on display was amazing..... I also particularly liked the shoe laths on display. Worth a visit . I

if you have 30 minutes to dedicate to something else cultural in the renaissance city - learn the history of one of the most famous shoemakers in the world - Ferragamo. It's in their eponymous palazzo

Museum includes admission to the small museum about the... More

My wife and daughter love shoes. They had a fantastic time looking at the displays of shoes from over the years. The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. They also had some history of Florence.The museum far-exceeded our expectations.

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.
