Wait in line, ice cream is delicious. The high turn over means the ice cream is fresh and delicious! Bravo!

Absolutely awesome selection... and delicious gelato! Best we had in Florence! Panetonne Biscotti was our favourite and very friendly helpful staff.

My daughter spent a semester in Florence and this was her hands down favorite gelateria. I agree! We had our fair share of gelato during a 10 day trip to Italy and La Carraia was my favorite. It is a tremendous value - 1.5 euros...More

When we first arrived in Florence, we asked our Airbnb host, "Where would you go for good ice cream?" He started rattling off the names of a few local places, and we stopped him mid-sentence, reiterating, "No ... We don't want to know where you'd...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
