Gelateria Perche No... (or Why Not!) is right off the main thoroughfare leading from The Duomo to Ponte Vecchio. This gelateria offered many different flavors to choose from, ranging from refreshing fruit to decadent chocolate flavors. The watermelon was excellent and reasonably priced (around 2-3 Euro for a rather generous small scoop).

Lovely gelato with lots of flavours available, including a couple of soy based flavours for the lactose-intolerant gelato lover.

I had read such great things, but it didn't seem like anything special. It was good gelato, but not worth a second trip.

We went to Florence, and it was hot, so we decided to have some Sorbetto. We had good ones in Rome so our expectations were high. The staff there are so friendly and their Sorbetto are the best. Strawberry, melon, watermelon and Blueberry were our favorite. All natural and made everyday. The Sorbetto were so good that we were going... More

We thought Perche No was the best gelato we had in Italy (combining taste and value). It was recommended to us by our tour guide, and he did not lead us astray! Winning flavors included coffee crunch, pistachio, and regular coffee. Two flavors fit into a small!

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.
