This is good gelato. It seems creamier than other gelato I've had. It's certainly popular there was a line out the door when we arrived. Three workers were going non-stop. They aren't particularly friendly but they are efficient. The gelato is what you come for...More

We went here a couple of times as it was on our way back to our airbnb from Santo Spirito. Really excellent gelato, but i've got to say it was the chocolate mousse that blew us away! Get a cup or cone and sit out...More

Italy has the best Ice cream (Gelato) in the world, no question. I love Gelato and have tried more than 50 different Gelaterias in Italy. I am very comfortable to say this is in the top 5, for sure! Try any flavour, there is no...More

With extremely expensive prices at the centre of the city you're much better off making the short walk accross the bridge to Gelateria La Carraia. There are many fantastic flavours to choose from and at a reasonable €2.50 for two scoops. We particularly enjoyed the...More

We went here every day in Florence and even went here on our wedding day! The gelato is unreal. The chocolate chip and mint were my favorites. Seriously miss this place!

We have tried many places in Rome and Florence, but this place is the best. Lots of unique flavors. We had the chocolate mouse and strawberry Gelato. It was creamy and taste like real fruit. Get the passion fruit which was my favorite.

I don't know what else to say except I've been here every day on both of my trips to Florence and it's still the best ice cream I've ever had. Better prices than by the Duomo as well... Seriously don't miss this!

I was first recommended to Gelateria la Carraia by some locals about 12 years ago, and each time I come back to Florence, it's my go to location and it never disappoints. It's right next to the river, so you can take in some views...More

Not only are there a ton of delicious flavors to choose from, but it is also reasonably priced. I really enjoyed the tiramisu and chocolate mousse flavors, but my friends also loved theirs. Definitely worth the visit!

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

Can I please enquire to the exact address of the Via de Benci location of Gelateria La Carraia? How do I find it?

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
