My Sweet Florence

Nice to sweet you!” Let’s explore Downtown Florence’s marvels and flavours through a fun and original walking tour for gluttons and curious visitors. Elegant “pasticcerie” (pastry shops), candy stores, an antique bakery and artisanal ice cream makers are nestled along the side streets of Dante’s district or Piazza Santa Croce. Every season offers gorgeous surprises: almond and raisin cakes in the fall, soft cakes with grapes in September and delicious artisan warm chocolate in the winter!

What’s the best gelato in Florence? Well, here you will have the last word after two tastings at the best gelaterie in town. You’ll try out superior sorbets and ice creams, creamy or refreshing, organic and traditional ones. The flavours rotate according to seasonal ingredients: many ice cream flavours are innovative such as ricotta cheese and figs, some others are classics such as cioccolato (chocolate), fior di latte (white cream) and stracciatella (cream with pieces of chocolate). All ice creams we’ll taste are strictly made in-house!
