Here are the 5 best places to eat icecream in Florence, very useful if you want to avoid touristic places where icecream are not so good.
First one is Gelateria de’ Neri located in Via dei Neri behind the Old Palace, there you can eat creamy icecream with so different tastes. You can of course taste classic flavour but unuasual ones are also very good such as ricotta and fig or gorgozonla and whipped cream…
The second is Badiani located in via dei Mille where you can eat a great melting chocolate icecream. It’s open until late (1am).
Then Carapina located in the center near the Ponte Vecchio or also in piazza Oberdan. It proposes only icecream of season, it’s forbbiden to ask strawberry during winter ! You must try fruits flavour, mint is delicious during summer.
The Gelateria de’ Medici located in Via dello Statuto. Best tastes are those with chocolate such as chocolate and orange. It’s almost always open and until late.
Last one is Grom located in Via del Campanile behind the Duomo, fruits tastes are really good but prices are a little high and there is always a queue.
