This was the first gelato I had in Italy and it very nearly ruined all other gelato for me. Very very rich, creamy and all around delicious.

My sin is to admit that I have been a few times this month, any excuse to savour a yummy ice cream, with two scoops please fondant and pistachio. My family has always enjoyed as much as myself, the only but? You always return...

The chocolate ice cream tastes exactly the same as Ferrero and the strawberry ice cream tastes exactly the same as a real fresh strawberry! Ohmygod! I would travel back to Florence again for more tastes!

This place is amazing! I had the cheesecake and hazelnut flavors. The gelato was very fresh, no freezer burns! Best gelato shop in Florence and the staff was friendly.

This is the best place for ice-cream that I have ever had the good fortune to visit. I am convinced that it is the only place in Florence (or even the world) that does salted peanut flavour. It was absolutely delicious. There are so many flavours to choose from; the price is right and the staff are lovely. I am... More

During our short stay in Fierenze we went there twice and ate way to much absolutly delicious icecream. The chocolate orange flavor was my favorite. But the fondante, the pistachio and the white chocalate are also great.

Just a bit further away the city centre. Very busy place. Best flavours: fig & walnuts and yogurt & nutella. Prices start from €1. Must try it!

I still dream about this place. We were recommended it by the guidebook, trip advisor and our airbnb host - so we figured it had to be good. It was better than good, it was exceptional. We tried some gelato from a number of other places to compare, before we realised that no one else even came close. I am... More

Only here 2 days and we kept coming back. By far the best gelato I've had in Italy. The dark chocolate and the white chocolate with pistachio sauce were my favorites

Oh, the Gelato! Friends, here in Florence, just before us, raved about Gelateria La Carraia, and its gelato. Sharing five flavors, between us, we came away understanding their rave! We are doubting there could be a flavor we wouldn't like! If you understand good gelato, i.e., really good gelato, then you will love this place. And if you are, by... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
