My friends and I stopped for Gelati after an evening walk around Florence. We all enjoyed some nice gelati. My cup was only 2 euro but the cup was quite small. A very refreshing break in then hot evening.

We had a lovely Aperol sprit drink and Anita gave us excellent service. Great view by the river! We will come back :)

Delicious gelato, we tried the lemon and also the yoghurt. Both were smooth and creamy. Small pots €2. Interior nice and clean and a small pavement area to sit at overlooking the Arno. Would recommend a visit.

Gelato is good almost anywhere in Italy. This little place is really lovely, family run, and the Gelato is delicious.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
