Do not go in... they ripped us off. I ordered 2 small Gelati's and even asked the server to show me the small size. She pointed to a choice of cone or cup. I asked whether what she was showing me was the "small" size no less than 3 times and was told yes each time. Then they rang me... More

Paid 15€ for 2 small gelato. I've had better for half the price. They were pushy and tried to get me to purchase sodas while the other person rang me up. I think they use it as a distraction. In a city that charges about 3 to 4 euro for a small gelato I think they charge unsuspecting tourists as... More

Cost us 48,50 in Euros for my family of 5 for gelato and waffles at this outdoor stand! Prices weren't posted and then they provided two of us with more of a waffle sandwich with Gelato in the middle to further inflate the price I guess. Was expecting to pay less than half of what we were forced to pay.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
