After all day walking around beautiful Florence I stopped at Gelateria de' Medici for the best gelato I've ever had! There is no more Gorgonzola flavour (their famous so far) so I chose Mascarpone/ Ricotta e pere! Out of this world...!

Everything's pretty easy to walk to in Florence, so make it your business to stop by this gelateria for one of the best gelatis you will have ever experienced, and their gelato-filled fruit are a wonder to behold!

My husband and I are pretty picky about our gelato since we've been in Florence for 2+ years now. We're fortunate to live near Badiani (a dream of a gelateria) but when we're downtown, Gelateria de Medici is one of our favorite stops! The people...More

The best gelato we've had in Italy so far! It's so good. Especially their house flavour. Its a small place in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds and city center, but it is worth it.

This is my favorite gelateria in Firenze. They have excellent flavors and everything is fresh. It's also a local favorite as well. The best is the ricotta and pear (best gelato I've ever had) followed closely by the orange and chocolate.

You have to put at least a hundred symbols for Trip Advisor, but in fact it's just four: the best ice-cream ever. That's it. Worth trying if you are around.

This place is far off the beaten path but worth a visit for the chocolate orange flavor. It is about 1.5 miles from the Ponte Vecchio so put on your walking shoes.

The Gelateria de' Medici has the best gelato in the world. Period. Whether it is in Piazza Beccaria or Via dello Statuto, the gelato is amazing. From the incredible pistacchio, riso, misto bosco and fior di latte and nutella and the crema dei medici and...More

Tried many renowned and recommended gelatos via TripAdvisor and traveler's blogs but the gelatos here win hands down. It probably set the bar too high for me to enjoy gelatos elsewhere. You have not had gelato until you have tasted their pistachio gelato. Simply revelatory

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
