During your walk with my daughter Laura you will make three stops to enjoy the best Gelato in town while talking about its origin, false myths, the process of making it and the relationship between locals and our favorite dessert. Laura will also share stories, anecdotes and talks about Florence history, culture and life style as only a lifelong local can tell. We will keep tasting gelato while walking through quaint, narrow back streets and squares, the playground of our childhood. Crossing bridges and exploring you will discover the two different amazing and fascinating faces of the same, wonderful city. You will taste Florence both with gorgeous gelato and stories that you won't find in any guidebook. A gelato tour in Florence (skipping the tourist traps) is an experience that can't be missed. Btw, at the end of our walk, you will nominate your favorite gelato spot. I have my top choice already but I won't tell you until the end and... after you, of course! LAURA
I was born in the heart of Florence and I have just celebrated my 91st birthday. My family and I have been living in the historical city center for 4 generations and we are not tour guides but just true lifelong residents in love with our city!The real Italian artisanal Gelato is locals' most loved dessert and part of our culture as well. My daughter Laura runs the experience and she is looking forward to sharing the authentic face of our amazing city and lifestyle with you. Hi! I am Laura, Gianfranco's daughter.

We will stop at two artisanal gelaterias in the old, historical city center, where my family and I have being enjoying their gelato for almost a Century. We will also cross the river to make one more stop and have one more gelato 'Diladdarno', the Florence of the old trades and traditions. it will be the perfect way to taste together the true flavors of our wonderful city.
Take your curiosity, comfortable shoes and be prepared to have lots of gelato!
The experience is suitable for vegetarian and celiac. The 3 gelatos and mineral water are included in the price of the experience. The tour could last a bit longer than 2 hours. I will be more than happy to give you all my personal tips and recommendations to make your stay in Florence memorable.
