Not to be outdone by the Gucci Museo there is the Ferragamo Museum for the shoe lovers in all of us. He started in Florence but did not achieve fame till he moved to Beverly Hills and was discovered by the Hollywood star set. He custom made shoes for the greatest stars of the day. He moved back to his hometown of Florence and continued to make beautiful shoes. You can see the history and the celebrity shoes in this sweet space that was his workshop. Oh and you can buy shoes next door in the store.
If you have a shoe problem (like me), then you won't want to miss this amazing store. They have just about every Ferragamo shoe known to man in here! If you like looking at beautiful women's and men's footwear, this place is a must-stop if you are in Florence. The staff was delightful and friendly (not snobby at all), and I was made to feel very welcome! There's an awesome shoe museum in the basement so be sure to take a stroll through it. I dare you to leave this shop without making a purchase!
