"Le Parigine" is a typical italian recipe for the famous Gelato, that instead of being placed in a cone, is layed between two layers of cookie. Le Parigine is an artisanal ice cream shop that was born in the historical palace of Buontalenti, in the very heart of Florence behind the Duomo and Giotto's Bell Tower, in Via dei Servi 41r. The Shop features a laboratory behind the counter where guests can view and appreciate how the ice cream, as well as the chocolate covered fruit, crepes and chocolate confectionary are made. The perfect place for those that wish to try one of the ancient traditions of ice cream making in Italy.

The best in Italy, or if not in Florence. The pink grapefruit granita and coconut gelato are to die for. Recommended by an Italian friend. Highly recommended!

We went to the "best" gelato Places in town but the dark chocolate here was the best!!! It was like cold chocolate brownie batter. Amazing and a great break from the crowds!

Need to get away from the crowds in the Duomo? Take a walk here to enjoy one of the very best gelato in Florence. Its dark chocolate is so dark it's virtually black - but amazingly, decadently delicious. While you're at it, explore the not-so-tourist-filled streets of Florence.

So far some of the best gelato I've had on my trip to Italy this summer. The Greek Yogurt was excellent. They offered a "baby size" for my youngest child- 5 small double scoops, a baby size scoop, 1 small granite and one large granite came to just over 16 Euros. Well priced and good quality, plus good service!

The small shop that offers a freshly made ice cream , prepared in the same place Daily is must try in Florence . They offer just few options of ice cream but what an ice cream . When comparing with the other gelato shops in Florence I tried .... This is 10/10 and the rest are too commercial and fake... More

Located just slightly off of the Piazza Duomo, le Parigine is a quaint little gelato shop, artisinally produced, that lacks the prices of the tourist-geared gelaterias in the main center, but lacks nothing in terms of great gelato! I particularly like their pinole flavor, whenever it's available.

Really really good gelato, very authentic tastes and not over sweet. We tried several flavours and voted the strawberry as the best closely followed by the banana. Often strawberry is too sweet or over strawberyish in a fake way this was perfect. The best ever.

Florence is known as the premier gelato capital of Italy and a trip to Florence must include at least a sample, diet or no diet. Gelateria Le Parigine does not disappoint and for those of us from America, nothing compares to their rich and creamy flavors.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
