Gelateria dei Neri



Named after the street where you find it, this ice cream shop is worth seeking out!

Just a couple of minutes walk from the Uffizi gallery, this family run gelateria has to be one of the best in Florence, producing their own ice cream, granita and semi-freddo.

Made only with the finest natural ingredients, the creamy smooth gelato is available in all kinds of fruit flavours as well as many variations of chocolate! For the more adventurous there is chocolate with chilli pepper, then there are the more familiar tastes of chocolate with orange and chocolate with hazelnuts and for anyone who really needs a hit of good chocolate, go for the cioccolato amaro, the pure dark chocolate gelato.

If you don't know granita, this is something you really should discover on a hot summer day; cooling and refreshing, the choice includes classic lemon or mint as well as the less well known latte di mandorle, almond milk. A semi-freddo is a chilled confection made with whipped cream, sweetened cream cheese and egg custard, think of variations on a theme of tiramisù.
