Amazing gelateria, the best we have had in our time in Florence. The lady let us try all the different flavours before choosing and I eventually went with the pear and ricotta, chocolate hazelnut and the mixed biscuit which were all immense! Wishing we could...More

They have an amazing assortment of hand made gelato, it's much better than the packaged stuff you get in downtown Florence so definitely worth the trip. We're thinking of coming back just for this place!

I had a gelato here and it was one of the best I have found in Florence - avoiding the ones in tourist centre.

By far, this gelateria, which serves artisanal gelato, is the best we have had in our trip. It has a great value for money, delivering big, delicious scoops for a decent price. It has an interesting array of flavors, fruit-gelato desserts, and other gelato-based desserts....More

After all day walking around beautiful Florence I stopped at Gelateria de' Medici for the best gelato I've ever had! There is no more Gorgonzola flavour (their famous so far) so I chose Mascarpone/ Ricotta e pere! Out of this world...!

Everything's pretty easy to walk to in Florence, so make it your business to stop by this gelateria for one of the best gelatis you will have ever experienced, and their gelato-filled fruit are a wonder to behold!

My husband and I are pretty picky about our gelato since we've been in Florence for 2+ years now. We're fortunate to live near Badiani (a dream of a gelateria) but when we're downtown, Gelateria de Medici is one of our favorite stops! The people...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
