The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Discover Fresh Fashion in Florence

4. Insider’s Tip

At the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, visitors in the know can see---and buy replicas of--shoes the master made for the likes of Audrey Hepburn.  

At the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum shop, ask to see the Ferragamo Creations collection. Hidden within a mirrored closet behind the register which only a sales clerk can open, you’ll discover replicas of shoes custom-designed for celebrities like Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. Visitors can order one of these limited edition shoes, re-released from the Ferragamo archives (from $637); all are made by hand, numbered and marked with the brand’s historic 1930s logo designed by futurist Lucio Venna.
