Not too far from the Piazza Santa Croce, we found ourselves there twice a day. My husband thinks of himself as an ice cream expert and could not get enough. We must have tried every flavor over the course of a few days and all were fresh, vibrant and fantastic.

Simple gelataria where you form an orderly cue, pick your size of cone or cup, what flavours, pay at the till and off you go. Their display is a feast for the eyes. So many colours, so many flavours, so little time to try them all. We were a group of 4 adults, so we tried some of the creamy... More

Some of the best ice-cream I had in the entirety of Italy (after extensive testing!). Go for their own special flavours (they have "Carraia" in the name. Truly excellent.

It is hard to live up to Giolitti's in Rome which was my first "real" Gelato experience, but this spot ranks high in my books! It was closing time when we stumbled in and the gal behind the counter seemed irritated with our lateness, (or maybe its just an italian thing lol) and only let us try 2 flavors before... More

Number one in Florence, number one in my heart. This is the real deal folks! May seem to be a little far, across the river, but all worth it

The only reason I won't rate this gelato stop higher is I visited more than 10 gelateria's during my trip to Italy and this one wasn't at the top of the overall list although it was my second favorite in Florence. Nice and creamy, not overly sweet and without the often lingering artificial coating on my tongue when I finished.... More
