You have to put at least a hundred symbols for Trip Advisor, but in fact it's just four: the best ice-cream ever. That's it. Worth trying if you are around.

This place is far off the beaten path but worth a visit for the chocolate orange flavor. It is about 1.5 miles from the Ponte Vecchio so put on your walking shoes.

The Gelateria de' Medici has the best gelato in the world. Period. Whether it is in Piazza Beccaria or Via dello Statuto, the gelato is amazing. From the incredible pistacchio, riso, misto bosco and fior di latte and nutella and the crema dei medici and...More

Tried many renowned and recommended gelatos via TripAdvisor and traveler's blogs but the gelatos here win hands down. It probably set the bar too high for me to enjoy gelatos elsewhere. You have not had gelato until you have tasted their pistachio gelato. Simply revelatory

This place is worth the walk or bus trip from downtown. Great prices, amazing flavors and just plain authentic. You won't get the nasty tourist gelato here - only exceptional flavors that make choosing only a few flavors difficult.

Don't go for the crema de Medici, its plaint vanilla and cookies. The fruit flavors are great. Try the pear... Great ice cream

We were in Florence three days. We had Gelato here in our first night and went back every day thereafter. By far the best Gelato we ate while in Italy.

Having eaten gelato every day while I was in Italy, when I say this is the best, it is the BEST! Our tour guide, who is a native of the area, recommended that we try it out. The prices were reasonable, compared to other gelato...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
