The Gelateria la Carraia is just a block away from the Gelateria Santa Trinita. There is an ongoing battle as which has the best gelato in Florence. It's a tough decision to make as both have excellent quality. We voted for Santa Trinita but only because they had a wider variety of choices. Try them both and enjoy.

Amazing gelato in Florence, and only 1 euro for a small cone. On the other side of the river, but not a far walk by any means. Definitely worth the trip!

During my second trip to Florence my family and I ran into this wonderful place and it quickly became our favorite gelato place of the trip! There is a one taste limit on the gelato but the favors make up for it. The favorite flavor of the group was the dark chocolate and I recommend paring it with the mint.... More

This place usually has a line. It's by the Arno River, so once you get your gelato you can sit by the river and enjoy the view, along with some of the best gelato I had during our trip. I especially like nocciola, pistachio and strawberry but I think any flavor you get would be just as good.

Went on a walking tour with friends and decided we needed a bit of a sweet tooth. The gelato is one of the best I had. So many amazing flavours to choose from. I decided to go with all the funky names. The staff member was extremely friendly and pronounced it in the best Italian way. Affordable, worth the flavours.... More

I am a huuuge ice cream fan. Must say that in Florence I've had the best of my life. This is a good spot to stop by and enjoy nice gellato! The mojito is lovely (kind of lemon and fresh mint) also the mango and the pistachio are my favourites! I will definitely recommend it

Excellent gelateria near the river, maya people in a line to wait their turn. We loved the creaminess and the qualità of ice-cream. Friendly staff, no expensive.

We were told about this Gelateria by a local. It lived up to its expectations. The gelato was delicious and they give you a nice size portion. I wanted to go back again and again to taste more favors.

The line stretching out the door of mainly Italians (with a few tourists thrown in) convinced us that our dinner waiter's suggestion was likely a good one. Our first bites of Ricotta and Pear, Melon, Peach and Nocciola confirmed the choice. We have a high standard for ice cream - we live in Cambridge, MA so get to enjoy Toscaninni's... More
