The gelato here was rich and creamy and delicious. Very much as we expected gelato would be like in Italy. We were told that gelato in Tuscany is the best and that was confirmed for us later in our tour. If you are ever in Florence and you are having a yen for gelato this is the place. It's just a short walk towards the river from Il Duomo.

Festival looked like the last place that would have great Gelato. Bright lights & close to one of the main piazza's, you'd think it was a tourist trap. If you're in Florence you HAVE to go! They have way more selection than any other Geleteria & it's so fresh. We were in Florence for 5 nights and had it every night, along with other spots to compare. I had Gelato every night for two weeks so I feel confident when I say, DO IT!

We were in Florence days and got gelato from her 4 times...... It was the best gelato i had in Italy with soooooo many flavours to choose from. Only cost 3.50 euros for 3 flavours! LOVED LOVED LOVED!

We have never seen a gelato place with so much variety. My husband and I shared a small (not small at all!) lemon and raspberry and we'd say that it was the best we had on our entire vacation. Definitely recommended.
