During my 10 days in Italy I had gelato at least once a day. Our Florence tour guide recommended this place and I'm glad I went. They make their gelato fresh daily and you can definitely taste it! The flavours are genuine and they use fresh ingredients. The service is really great too. I wished I was able to try... More

I went to Perche No the first time I visited Florence in 1974, so when I returned this September and saw that the place was still in business, I went in. I was not disappointed. The ice cream and sherbet are still every bit as good as I remembered them. Some of the gelateria's in Florence have started using emulsifiers... More

I have been to Florence 4 times in the last five years and Perche No is my favorite gelateria in the city. Three years ago I rented an apartment just a few doors down and I was there every day - sometimes a couple times per day! Given its location Perche No is a very popular spot since it's so... More

I was recommended by a local and was not disappointed. I had the pistachio and stracciatella. It is traditionally homemade every morning so very fresh. Do not go to the mound gelato places - not good. They use natural ingredients with no coloring, preservatives or emulsifiers. And no hydrogenated vegetable fats. Just off the main shopping street so nice break.... More

Very good gelato. Lots of classic flavors and some sorbet/fruit versions. The lines will be long because it's very well-known but it goes by very quickly. The staff is nice and patient considering the long lines. Because gelato shops are so popular in Florence/Italy, the only way to really differentiate what's best is to try the unique flavors as the... More

This was recommended by my walking tour guide, and I also saw a lot of tour guides bringing people here. Perché No means Why not in Italian. And indeed, why not! This shop that has been here since 1939 and does some amazing gelato. I came back twice (that the shop owner recognised me) and got the Pistachio, Strawberry and... More

We loved the gelato at Perche No. We visited a few other gelaterias while we were in Florence, but Perche No was our favorite by far. Their gelato is delicious and fresh, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. I particularly loved the almond flavor, and one night when we stopped in, we found that there was no almond gelato... More

This place was hopping and so I had to try gelato from the oldest shop in town. I had the lemon and hazelnut (perhaps not the most amazing combination, but delicious on their own). Not too pricey, you get a fair scoop for the 4Euro for a small.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
