How can only a gelato flavour make me take a bus to a suburb of Florence? It is possible, and it happens very often…This gelato heaven is called Gelateria dè Medici and the very special guest is called “crema de’ Medici”.
The location of this gelateria is in the Statuto district, a residential area that probably is not even mentioned in your guidebook. It can be reached with a bus ride of a few minutes. Once you enter into this place you will be enraptured by the cabinet containing their magic creations. You probably would like to taste them all, but please do not even think to leave without having ordered their signature flavour “crema de medici”.
Unfortunately this gelateria doesn’t have any place to sit so you have to stand on the street and it is not on an attractive one. But after one taste you can fall in a trance and fly wherever you want.
Update Apr. 2016: They opened another spot on Piazza Beccaria. Just as delicious as the original one.
