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

Best gelato we've ever eaten! And very reasonable price too. They even recommended a place for dinner when all restaurants nearby were closed and were super lovely. Definitely worth a visit!

Disregarding the softness of the gelato, this artisan is perfect. The flavours were intense, creamy, as well as fluffy. Despite the fact that it was a little too soft this gelato was so flavourful it was still amazing. The chocolate-mint was superb. The cherry had...More

I go here at least once a weak. The ice cream is delicious!! Not over the top, as you see in many gelateria’s in the center. The ice cream is very tasteful and fresh. The price quality is really good. You pay 2/3 euro for...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
