Best gelato in Florence

So we are back home, and this is THE one gelato of the many we tried in Florence that we cannot stop thinking about!! The gelateria itself is beautiful, with a lot of the original details it had when it opened in the 30s. You can't go wrong with any of the flavors. Do yourself a favor and GO!

We went here four times during our visit and tried something new each time. Everything was delicious. My favorite was the mint (it wasn't green!!) which to me is a sign that everything is made as it should be. Real mint flavor should be either white or very, very pale green if using the leaf. The honey with walnut was... More

It was our last night in Florence and this ice cream made it special. We tried strawberry, pistachio and peach. I highly recommend the pistachio. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Unfortunately the taste of the pistachio made me forget to picture it.

I wish I could give this place 10 stars! We did a tasting here as part of a tour and fell in love. We went here four times in two days. Absolutely amazing! The best gelato in Florence!

They were out of Mango flavour, it must be the most popular one, each visit I pay them, mango is out! Anyway, I had the banana one, it was absolutely incredible. My friend had triple chocolate or something like that, he almost reached heaven...

It's been 15 years since my wife and I went here for the first time, and in all those years we wondered if we'd over-romanticized the place. Well, I can happily report that, upon coming back to Florence this week with our daughter and trying Perche No! within the first day, it's as good as I remember. The chocolate/strawberry combination... More

Authentic gelato and sorbetto. Many different and traditional flavors to try. Just be prepared to stand in line but know that is worth it!

It is one of my favourite gelateria in Florence. I like its consistency, it's very smooth and not overly sweet. Light wonderful gelato. All the gelato is freshly made in house, there are special flavours that vary depending on the day of the week. The only thing - it can get too crowded, it's a very touristy place. But I... More

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.
