A friend of our daughter, who studied in Italy, and made frequent trips to Florence, that this was the best she had experienced. We sought out this Gelateria, after a night of sightseeing and climbing the Duomo. This was, by a long distance, the best...More

This is hands down the best gelato I have ever had and I have visited many shops in and around Florence. My son, although he tried several varieties, decided to have the same as I- the orange cream with pieces of orange rind and chocolate....More

This was one of the best gelato places in Florence. They are very inexpensive, the lines move very quickly, and the flavors are absolutely amazing. I was in Florence for 3 weeks, and I came to get gelato here almost every single night. (Hint: The...More

The ice creams were quite good, variety of flavours and cones. They're not expensive at all. I ordered 2 flavours tho but only got one :(

I've been here several times and every time, the gelato is delicious. It's the best gelato I've ever had! The portions are huge! Highly recommend the mint chocolate chip!

During our 10 days in Italy we got to taste the ice-cream of various popular gelaterias but nothing beat La Carraia. The variety of tastes, the smoothness and creaminess of their ice-cream is unbeatable. Try out their dairy-free ice-creams which to my amazement were as...More

Florence can be hot so an ice cream is perfect to cool down! With lots of choices it's hard to decide where to go! I would recommend Gelateria La Carraia!!! DELICIOUS!!! No other words needed to describe the ice cream.

I had the 1E tasting cone - enough for me. The waffle cone with two flavours was enormous and delicious. We nearly walked past this shop until a passerby told us it would be a mistake - and he was right!

La Carraia was recommended by a friend and a staff member at our hotel and we were not disappointed. When we got there, there was a short line (maybe 5 minutes of waiting), but when we left, the line had doubled in size. Definitely worth...More

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

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
