This was my favorite gelato in all of Italy. As was suggested, we got some gelato and then stood in line for our wait to get in to see Michelangelo's David. It was a great suggestion. This is an icier gelato than most, but I...More

Slightly off the beaten track gelateria but worth the slight detour for well flavoured gelato that taste the way they are meant to per ingredients, with a little more unusual flavours such as black fig offered.

This gelateria was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Not especially touristy and tucked away near the Galleria dell' Accademia. Coffee and chocolate was stunning, as was the pineapple and their sicilian flavour but there are some wonderful choices. Nice just to sit in...More

Made fresh on order. You won't get better. Small shop in a side street. You need to look for it but it's worth it.

We have tried many gelatos in Florence but Carabe's are definitely best. Naturally it's up to the flavors one prefers but almond and ricotta were delicious

Excellent gelato (and granita as well!) Top choice - the coffee flavored granite with whipped cream. Perfect on a hot Florence day.

This was recommended but was disappointing. There's another just down the street to try. Watch for shops that have product not higher than the edge of the containers. Some look pretty but have preservatives.

We were dying for some good cannoli as we've had a few ok ones in Rome. When we got to Florence, we were on the hunt for some really fresh and tasty cannoli. We found Gelateria Carabe- blink and you'll miss it. I was expecting...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
