This would definitely rate for the TV show...the chocolate hazelnut crepe...to die for. It is warm, chocolatey, and had wonderful pieces of chopped hazelnuts. Skip the gelato on at least one day and head on over to Venchi Chocolate shop. You will not be sorry. We split one for dessert and will head back over again before our tripod over!

Both locals and visitors alike seem to agree that Venchi is the best gelato around. Certainly our experience concurs. There's nowhere to sit and it's in a pretty crowded part of town, but the chocolate was as rich and dark as could be and the vanilla creamier than I could have hoped for. Definitely a great mid afternoon pleasure!

I do love the gelato here, but with it's location right off the Ponte Vecchio it's always crushingly crowded. It's very difficult to make the staff hear you much less ask any questions. But, the gelato is good and they have a divine chocolate with cinnamon flavor I haven't seen anywhere else in Florence.

Early evening on a Sunday seems to be prime gelato time, and the line was out the door when we arrived around 5 p.m. But the gelato was great and, unlike Vivoli, Venchy offers cones. According to our hotel front desk, Venchy has the best chocolate gelato in town.
