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

Nice gelato just few steps from Galleria dell'Accademia. You can choose from the quite simply but still wide range of flavors. If you are not a big ice cream fan - take granita - kind of drinkable sorbet. Very refreshing!

Gelato is good, but nothing special to us. But those freshly cooked cannolis are the cherry on a top. 3 euros per cannoli, but they are amazing!

While Carabe is known for it's fruit gelato and gravitas (they import their lemons from Sicily), my husband couldn't stop talking about the artisan flavors he has (in between bites!). He had the pear and parmigiana gelato with their olive oil flavor. Apparently, they are...More

Amazing gelato. Well worth the wait in line. Try the black cherry and the pistachio together! For the soft gelato try the mousse.

This gelateria is pure deliciousness! The gelatos' are made daily with seasons products and have just the right creamyness and sweetness. During my 5 days stay in Florence I stopped there every day in late afternoon for another mind blowing experience. (Sometimes after having another...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
