Where to find the best ‘gelato’ in Florence

One of the best things of the summer is that you can enjoy a creamy, tasty and always refreshing ice cream and feel like a kid again.

Italy is well-known for being the most delicious ice creams’ place in the world.

In case you’re coming to Florence this summer, sooner or later you’ll wonder “Where can I find a good gelato?”. Following, you’ll find some suggestions:

If you’re near Santa Croce, you can visit Vivoli, in Via Isole delle Stinche 7r, most of all if you like the fruit tastes.

When you’re going by Il Palazzo Vecchio, Gelateria de’Neri, Via dei Neri 22r, won’t let you down.

If you’re in the Oltrarno area, you can go to Gelateria La Carraia (Piazza Sauro Nazario, 25r – Ponte alla Carraia) or Gelateria Della Passera (Via Toscanella 15r) and start enjoying.

Close to the Duomo (Via del Campanile corner with Via delle Oche) you can find the excellent Italian worldwide chain Grom. On the other side, Gelateria de’ Medici, at Via dello Statuto 3/5, is not in the center of Florence, but it’s one of the best gelaterias in the city.

In Florence there is also an ice cream shop that has been recently elected as one the best 20 ones in the world: Carapina, at Piazza Guglielmo Oberdan 2/r.

And of course, at Il Salviatino, you can have the best ice cream with the best views of Florence at the same time, from the top of Fiesole’s hill.

There’s still a lot summer ahead. Let’s have fun! Let’s enjoy Florence.

Not only you will fall in love with everything worth seeing here; you will also fall in love with the rich Tuscan gastronomic offer.
