This was the best gelato I had in Florence and probably in Italy (visited Venice, Milan, Lake Como). Only 3 euros for 3 flavors. The house cream gelato was so so so good. Got to enjoy this in the Rose Gardens before the final trek up to piazzale de Michangelo. If in Florence, must try this place!

Try the sweet wine and cream flavour. The lady that served us was great and helpful. We've had three ice creams in two days this is the best so far. Enjoy.

Quaint and close to my hotel (Hotel Silla). I stopped in after a day of touring. The gelato hit the spot nicely. Give it a try. No disappointments and such a lovely lady who served me. Mille grazie!

We stopped in on our way to the piazza on the hill and we realized it was cash only and the woman kindly waited for us to return and assured us not to worry at all. She even gave my chocolate loving boyfriend an extra taste of the chocolate mousse she had prepared in the back. We would be happy... More

Possibly the best gelateria in town (believe me, have tried a few) - excellent variety of flavours, including several sorbets. Reasonably priced (unlike some places nearer the town centre), huge portions and truly friendly and welcoming staff who`d give you a taster of any flavour you might be interested in before you decide. Have walked across town twice on a... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
