This gelateria is a 5-10 minute walk from the Palazzo Pitti and Santo Spirito but worth it (think of it as burning off some of the calories from the ice-cream!). The piazza it's on was buzzing with locals chatting and kids playing football late afternoon, but don't let the atmosphere distract you or you'll miss the gelateria which is just a hole in the wall type place. The gelato was lovely and creamy - our favourite in Florence. The Salted Caramel is as tasty as everyone says it is, but also very good are Cookie and Chai Tea Latte (which my husband says was a genius idea!).
