We must have ate here 4 times in the 3 days we were in Florence! We tried the Fondente flavor at a lot of different places in Italy and the Festival del Gelato HANDS DOWN had the best! Their other flavors were excellent too but...More

Can't get enough of this place! The gelato is top notch, the service is great, and it's in a great part of town. :)

The prices are fine, 2.5euro for the small cone (with 2 flavors). It is a "hand made" ice cream - Raw materials are good. just buy your ice cream and move on...

Artificial taste. Expensive. Taste is so-so. Too sweet. Not worth the money. There are so many excellent gelaterias in Florence that you'd better save your money and calories for a better place.

Nice and lively place with lots of good flavours to choose from. Good priced and a place where to sit down and enjoy your treat.

It's a nice Gelateria, but for sure it's not the best in the area. The location is very nice, but you can find better quality and also quantity for the same money. The selling persons are very relaxed, and they don't consider the customer their...More

Passed by this place and was wowed by the vast array of flavours. Instead got charged €3 for a small cup of very artificial-tasting gelato. Scoops were tiny for the price (and no cone), and flavours lacked intensity or freshness. Wander over the Ponte Vecchio...More

Although they boast a wide variety of gelato, it's all rather plastic-tasting and none of the flavors I've tried are very good. The chocolate tasted like it had come out of the freezer section of an American Wal-Mart.

The gelato is not the best I've had, but this is the place to go if you want to be adventurous with your flavour choices and combinations! There's a wide variety to choose from. It's centrally located and reasonably priced. From here you can grab...More

We came here after having passed by it days earlier and we didn't regret it one bit. The fruity flavours are great for quenching thirst on a warm day. The price was surprisingly good for being in the city centre.

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
