WOW!!!! We passed it by coincidence, situated just outside of the touristic city center and visited by lots of Italians and I understand why!!!! Best gelato I ever had, even went back in for another. Lots of flavors. Wish we had gelaterias like that in Holland... Will definitely go back whenever I am in Florence.

Absolutely love the selection of sorbet in exotic fruits. Perfect for special dinners just like the medici used to serve for the banquets!

Years ago my wife lived close-by, while studying in Firenze and she recommended to try this place. It was definitely worth the detour! I loved the consistency of the ice: just the right proportion of milk and cream. Many other places sell icecream that is way too fat and creamy, which weighs upon the taste and spoils the overall experience.... More

One of my favorite places to have Gelato. Amazing flavors and quality. Incredible cakes to take away. Out of tourist area and very authentic! Crema di Medici is not to be missed.

Must be tried when in Florence. It is outside the city centre, so is more frequented by locals. We understood why: one of the best gelateria's we tried in Italy!!!

The gelati is delicious, and they have a wide array of varieties to choose from. Definitely try the frozen gelati balls! To make this place even better, the staff are amazing - so helpful, definitely the best customer service I've ever had!

Gelateria known for its the variety of fruit-flavour gelati. The ice-cream is definitively far too sweet and it melts very quickly. Do not try mascarpone, zenzero (ginger), riso (rice), pistacchio. Nocciola gentile is ok, but still very sweet.

To say that they sell Ice Cream seems to be almost trite to say. At Gelateria De Medici they sell a slice of the Italian desert Experience. I discovered them because I was responsible for dessert at a swank event, I purchased the Bon Bons. It was a great hit. So, I was hooked and have been telling my friends... More

When you first walk in to Gelateria de' Medici, the first thing that strikes you, apart from the chandeliers, is the enornous choice of gelati. The second thing that hits you is the sheer creativity. And the third, well it's just the best ice cream you'll ever taste. And unlike other gelaterias in the centre of town, they are very... More
