We bought a small gelatto as a special treat, as we were in the middle of winter. It was so good that we ended up buying two more, in different flavours.

My husband and I asked our travel guide where to go for really good gelato, and she recommended this place. All I can see is that it was GREAT. I had the salted caramel with pistachio (sounds like a really strange combination, however I was...More

They say that Italians have the best gelato and when you come to a place like the Gelateria La Carraia it might just prove to be true. The flavours are somewhat unique and they taste beyond great. Definetely a place to go when in Florence,...More

With so much choice for the gelato lovers in Florence, it has to be really good to make you want to come back again to repeat the experience. La Carraia managed this accomplishment! The Yogurt flavour is one of the best I have tried. The...More

We had gelato at least 15 times during our Italy trip and this place was definitely in the top 3, maybe the best. They have a ton of flavors. Don't let the line scare you - it moves quickly.

We went to La Caraia based on it's Trip Advisor score and we were not dissapointed. The icecream was excellent and the ones that are fruit based taste exactly like the real fruit. I recommend getting Simfonia La Carraia which is probably their signature icecream

Maybe because it is not in the city centre the quality is higher and the price is lower. Well worth visit. Could do with space to sit and eat.

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
