Pleasant walk

We walked along the Arno River and found the original Ferragamo store which houses the museum downstairs. The museum is not too large and can be visited fairly quickly.

This is truly spectacular to see all of the original works of Salvatore Ferragamo. Gave me such a renewed perspective especially on the brand! Fascinating exhibits -- if you have the time, this is a fun little midmorning activity. We got passes from our hotel.

Firenze based, how can you not be in the heart of Firenze and not visit Palazzo Spini Feroni if you have any interest in fashion. See the Museum and shop. Great gift for the women in your life are the scarves particularly the scarf with Palazzo Spini Feroni printed on it. A work of art, the merchandise, the building, the... More

We were very excited to tour the Ferragamo museum and to learn about the artist and his life - well besides seeing some shoe molds of famous people you really don't learn anything else about the man or the fashion house he created. The bulk of the museum is for special exhibits and have nothing to do with Ferragamo. The... More

This small museum includes exhibits of shoes, of course, and elegant fashions. One could spend a lot of time admiring the footwear and I wish the museum had more of it. The setting in a former palace is fabulous.

Felt good, away from those huge museums with millions of artworks. Modern, colourful and cool. Enjoyed it.

We expected more things to see in this museum but turns out EUR6 entry fee per person for such a tiny place to be called a museum. In addition, those displayed shoes and dresses are definitely not my cup of tea. Regreted that we spent money for this and they should simple make this so-called museum a part of the... More

We went to the Gucci Museum in the Piazza Signoria on the same afternoon and found that museum possibly a little more successful as there the focus is only on Gucci. Here you have Ferragamo but also (sometimes weird, e.g. mannequins run through with a sword) collaborations with others. And the staff are perhaps not quite as friendly. To find... More

WE came here excited to see the many shoes designed by Salvatore Ferragamo and we loved what we saw but it was more desginer clothes rather than shoes. What was on display was most interesting, but we would have liked more.

I attended the museum without my husband (owner of this TA account) based on a recommendation from a tour we had previously gone on. Initially I felt uncomfortable when I arrived at the museum due to the dismissive staff who were handling the ticketing. Moving past that the exhibit itself was intriguing. I really did not have an appreciation until... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood 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.
