While walking the streets we paused for one of the many Italian gelato breaks. Good gelato. Delicious biscotti and pastry options. Prices slightly higher

Not good, but not bad either. I wouldn't seek out this gelato shop, but if passing by at the end of a walk into town from Torreone I might pop in to get a cone.

I love gelato and Dolce Vita did not disappoint. Even the smallest cup is a generous portion of creamy goodness. Stopped here three times on the day we visited Cortona. It was a very hot day!!

Small shop on the Via Nazionale in Cortona which serves very good ice cream. Even with the smallest cup you get a lot of gelato. The chocolate and cafè flavors are superb!

Have tried gelato in many locations but this one seems best! Creamy, tasty, good portions and nice selection of flavors. This is the best one in Cortona as well as some other local towns.

Gelato here has very generous portions, comes with 2 waffle wafers on top. The prices are reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

Tasty gelato with lots of great flavours. Very reasonable prices given how lovely it tastes. Limone my favourite - cross between a ice-cream and sorbet.

Reasonably priced genuine Italian ice cream devoured by my better half. Well worth the experience if her smile was anything to go by. Just at the entrance to the town near to the top of the escalators.

We go to Cortona on a regular basis and this is one of the things we really look forward to. The wonderful gelato, the choice of flavours, the generous servings, the staff and the long hours they stay open all make this our favourite.
