Prices are not listed. We ordered 4 cones and were charged 40 euros! There are much better, much less expensive gelato shops nearby. They take advantage of tourists visiting Ponte Vecchio. Shameful.

Absolutely overpriced gelato. We were shocked when we got to the cashier and he told us our two small gelato was 18.50 Euro! If I could have given it back I would have. Avoid this tourist trap!
