House of Gucci 

The first Gucci store, in the unique Via Tornabuoni of Florence, dates back to 1921, when a young leather goods manufacturer began to enter the world of fashion.

To discover the incredible story of Guccio Gucci and the House’s creativity, we will start our fashion tour from Piazza della Signoria, visiting the Gucci Museum.

Located in the Medieval Palazzo della Mercanzia, the exhibition shows the ambitious journey and the infinite vision of the brand, from its founder to present days.

The shoemaker of dreams: Salvatore Ferragamo 

Then, a short walk will lead you and your expert guide to the city’s “fashion district”, the area where the big brands are hosted in ​​Florence.

This is where, in 1927, Salvatore Ferragamo settled and with his creativity upset the style of the city. Later he became the trusted shoemaker of Hollywood stars such as Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, who became his loyal customers. You can’t miss a visit to Palazzo Spini Feroni, home to the museum dedicated to the company and its creations.

Leather, gold and scents of Florence

But we all agree that what makes Florence even more special, are its artisans! Together with your guide you will witness how a workshop performs at full speed, perpetuating the mastery of skilled and expert hands. Leather manufacturing is a Florentine tradition that dates back centuries. Our guided walk will take us to a leather craft shop, hidden in the narrow alleys of the Medieval city.

Strolling around, enjoying the fascinating streets and the historic buildings of Florence, your guide will take you to goldsmiths to admire precious, sparkling pieces. And what about that unique, handcrafted fragrance? The city offers many perfume stores, but you won’t stop at a simple shop, during this itinerary your guide will show you an olfactory workshop!
