One of the best gelateria's I have been to in Italy! I tried something I usually don't get, yogurt gelato, and it was phenomenal!

One of the best gelato places in Florence. Judge by the queues outside. A personal highlight was the yoghurt and nutella, but my favourite was the chocolate hazelnut... creamy and delicious! €3.50 for a medium waffle cone with 3 scoops!

It was one of the best gellaterias I went. There are a lot of flavours. I liked specially the chocolate mousse and the yogurt with nutella. The prices are good. I strongly recommend it.

I was recommended this place by a few locals during my trip to Florence. It was by far the best gelato I've ever had, and it was better than any ice cream available in the states.

One more gellateria that one must not miss. If you love gelato, you must visit Gelateria La Carraia several times.

My favourite was the white chocolate with pitstacio sauce and the salted peanut was amazing! The dark chocolate was yum but would only need a table spoon and it's enough it's very rich so I couldn't eat so much we both enjoyed the Caramel too...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
