We were on a day trip to San Gimignano and in need of a mid-afternoon gelato break.
A friend recommended a small gelateria on the piazza as one of the best in Italy.
Unusual flavors fresh made each day such as saffron and pine nut, chestnut, raspberry with rosemary and spicy dark chocolate were all perfection.

This is the world champion of gelatos and he wholeheartedly derserves it. Fantastic gelatos at reasonable prices right in central old San Gimignano main piazza.

There were 2 gelato shops in the old town square only metres apart. One promoted itself as the World Champion and the other as World's Best gelato. What to do? we tried both of course. This one had a slightly higher price point and the World's Best gave slightly bigger portions. Tough to tell which is better. Each had their own unique flavours but the true test is tasting the same flavour at each - basic and all time crowd favorite -limone. Both tasted the same if you ask me - that is to say, they were both excellent! Maybe the difference is in the cone? Guess I'll have to go back someday and taste all the flavours. Could take a few weeks to do that. Service waws faster at World's Best because of lines at World Champion. I guess promotion & advertising works.

So uhh, apparently world champion ice cream here.... It has some different flavours, but we also have some of those kinds of stores where I am from with some better. It isn't even personal taste coming in here I think, it is literally just a very normal ice cream place. It has large cones and I won't say the ice cream is bad. Had better ice cream in Germany, in Australia back home and in Japan to name some places that immediately come to mind with better ice cream than this in parts at the right stores.
