Best ice cream I’ve had in Florence during my 5 day stay! Must try before leaving!! Try the pistachio flavour

I've heard the queues can get pretty long, however when I went there were people waiting but moving along quickly. I tried the lemon and loved it! And at 1 euro for one flavour, you really can't go wrong!

I can really tell that this ice cream is good. The queue on a non-holiday was constantly way long and kept being long for the 30 minutes I was there during late afternoon. The price is very cheap 2 euro for a big ice cream...More

The ice-cream is good but there are invariably queues and nowhere to sit. I have had better ice-cream but also worse. The main negative point for me is the queues and lack of seating

Wonderful gelato. The dark chocolate was so rich it was sickening. Ate every last bit. Highly recommend this place. Short walk from the South end of the Ponte Vecchio.

I last visited this gelateria seven years ago and when I returned to Florence, I had to come back. It hasn't changed at all. They still have wonderfully creamy gelato with a wide range of flavours and some new favourites. Try Sinfonia - it's creamy...More

This is our favorite gelateria in Florence so far (out of 3, still more to go). Not only is the quality of the gelato and intensity of the flavors first-rate, but there is a wide selection (at least 30 flavors) to choose from. My personal...More

So yummmm! They satisfied my endless search for the best stracciatella!!! Don't bother waiting in the crazy line of the #1 Gelateria in San Gimignano! So not worth it!

Awesome, creamy gelato in Florence. Typical small gelato store but they have the best gelato for sure. It's a creamier Gelato than I have ever had and lots of flavors. Not pricey either. Great value too.

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

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
