Decent variety of flavors and great location for enjoying gelato on the river. Visited this shop several times on our trip for a nice after dinner dessert.

An Italian acquaintance told me La Carraia was 'where the locals go'. I can't swear to that but the gelato was awesome and the price was quite reasonable. I will be back, ohyes, I will be back.....

We spent a month in Florence and I set out to try all the flavours at Carraira, and I can say that anything you pick will be delish! Don't settle for the cheap cone, and go for a waffle one, it really makes all the...More

The best ice cream on our Italian trip. Queue was there but not too long. Worth the wait anyhow. No park nearby to sit in but some street furniture to choose from e.g. Shop doorway

This small gelato stop was awesome! The prices were quite reasonable at only $1,50 for a small serving (and after a full meal, this was more than enough). The family stuck with gelato but I opted for the peach granita. Wow - so delicious!!! Quick...More

Fresh and delicious gelato for a reasonable price. All the flavors look so good, it is hard to choose. Worth the wait. Servers are patient but also efficient in keeping the line moving.

Situated by the river this ice cream heaven sells the best choice and flavour of ice cream in Florence and at reasonable prices. After a month in Florence having samples many different also good places I can confirm this is the BEST!

Florence has many ice-cream gelaterias however this one offers a great selection of ice-creams for just €1 for 1 flavour or €2 for2 flavours. Given some gelaterias in Florence rip off tourists and charge up to €4 for a simple cone, we felt this one...More

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
