This is one of the few places in Florence, where you can also sit down for more than five minutes without having to spend a fortune for a small coffee.... The icecream is simply splendid (and also famous), but it unfortunately also has its price....

Badiani has one of the best gelatos in Florence: pistacchio, dolcevita and nocciola are absolutely great. The best is the "cremino al pistacchio" which unfortunately they do not make all the time. Do not take the cheesecake flavor, do not come to Italy for that.
