Lovely gelataria, far far cheaper than the gelatarias on the main square yet only a couple of minutes walk away. Loads of flavours to choose from but once I discovered lime and basil I was hooked! The nicest ice cream I've ever had. Ended up going there every day of my trip for my basil ice cream fix :-)

Well worth a visit... there are only a couple of really first rate places in florence for ice cream and this is one... might have a bit of a wait but its worth it

La Carraia is a step up from blatantly touristy gelaterias (the ones where the gelato is piled up a mile high), but still nothing special or authentic. There are a lot of flavors, so you won't struggle to find something you'll like, but you can find much better gelato in Florence. The set-up is also not the best, the line... More

SO many Gelato flavours - But, the pistachio is truly divine 👌🏼We visited everyday for our Gelato fix as each scoop is only €1 👏🏼

The ice cream is good, some better than others. It got 4 and not 5 due to the lack of sitting places. Kind service, reasonable price.

1EUR per scoop. Value for money. Shop is clean and brightly lit. Patronised it for 4 consecutive days!

We lined up with neighborhood Florentines for this fabulous gelato. Truly some of the best we've ever had. Made fresh daily, great flavors, quality gelato.

After going on a food tour, we knew this was real Gelato not made from powder. My daughter recommended this Gelato establishment and we enjoyed it immensely. This is a must do!

Only place where you can still get a gelato for 1 euro in Florence. The line up is long but well worth it

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
