There was one room with some shoes in it. They were interesting to look at. Apparently they rotate exhibits. The rest of the small museum is currently displaying Italians who were prominent during the silent film era. Valentino is the only one I recognized. I'm...More

There was an interesting exhibit on Ferragamo's involvement in Hollywood but wished that there were a few more items from collection/archives.

This museum was new to us and we enjoyed very much the material presented and the way and setting. We had no idea of the Hollywood background of S. Ferragamo before he came to Florence. Or the history of the Italian early cinema. A must...More

Truthfully I was disappointed that there were only about 2 dozen pairs of shoes on display. Most of the area was devoted to Italians in Hollywood in the 1920s and 30s, which was interesting but not what I sought.

Apparently it's not what it used to be. If you expect to see thousands of shoes you'd be disappointed - that was my wife's expectation and she was. Quite frankly I am glad it's not a shoe exhibit, there is one really nice painting inside...More

On my fourth trip to Florence, I made a point to go to some of the less well known museums. As luck would have it, my sister was with me on this trip. What better excursion for two sisters than to go to the Ferragamo...More

A beautiful museum with an impressive amount of history on the Italian who came to America, like Ferragamo, and brought their talents and creative flair to many industries. There is a lot of footage on cinema, since Ferragamo worked at one point as shoemaker to...More

This museum exhibits some of the most exquisite examples of Ferragamo’s work dating back to the early 1920. As a shoe lover I throughly enjoyed viewing this exhibition. Beautifully presented and worth while. Right next do the Ferragamo shop if you need to pick up...More

If you think you have had too much Renaissance stuff in a short period of time, this place is worth a visit. It is a good exhibition on the development of the brand and why it is good. Free audio guides are available.

One of my absolute favourite places to visit in Florence. Not really suitable for children & those not interested in fashion & recent Italian history. Makes a wonderful change from paintings of the Madonna & Child (which I like too but there can be overkill!)...More

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
