  • WHAT A RIP OFF! 20 pairs of shoes to break, no explanation on the manufacturing of the shoe & C is expensive! This is a gallery of art deco paintings, which could be interesting, but we're not here for that! In addition they are friendly as prison doors... FASHIONNISTA OR AMATEUR MUSEUM ON YOUR WAY! There are so many beauties to see in the neighborhood!

  • If you've already been to the Gucci Museum (a must visit), the Ferragamo Museum may seem a bit disappointing. Comprising a single floor in the basement of older building (beneath the Ferragamo store) , there is one room with very old Ferragamo shoe designs and lasts from celebrities going back to Mary Pickford. However, the three adjoining rooms feature avant garde creations by other designs such as Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons, and Maison Martin Margiela. There is not a single piece of clothing by Salvatore Ferragamo on display. Unless you are a huge fan or fashion student, your 6 euros may be better spent elsewhere.
  • Classic tourist trap. They lure you in with the brand name "Ferragamo", take your money, and then you realise you've just paid for a pathetic exhibition of 7 tiny rooms of senseless modern art all with some tenuous connection to the shoemaker. The store above was perhaps a more fitting tribute to the genius than the museum below.
  • If you are into fashion, highly recommended!
  • Bait and switch. This 6 euro museum houses exactly one small room dedicated to the work of Mr Ferragamo and the rest are somewhat interesting but unrelated exhibits relating to the building itself, as well as several art pieces. This was absolutely not worth the cost of admission and I recommend going into an actual Ferragamo store to get the same experience for free.
  • Just across the road from Tiffany's you'll find the Salvatore Ferragamo museum. Just 5 euros entrance fee and the money is nothing for what you learn and for what they have on display. Definitely definitely a place to visit.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
