The sweetest festival of Florence is going to begin today: The Gelato Festival!
Started in 2010, this festival is becoming each year more successfull thanks to the presence of the most famous gelato makers and the most important Italian productors gathered in a city that made the history of the Gelato!
The festival will take place in Santa Maria Novella Square, close to the train station, with the ‘Gelato-makers’ Village’, while Republic Square will be the location for the Sammontana Village (Sammontana is the greatest ice cream company of Italy, located in Empoli, near Florence). The Museo Alinari of Photography will house two exibitions on the history of the gelato in Florence and then a very important event: the inauguration of the Buontalenti’s Grotto opening, a magical place restored with the contribution of Sammontana!
If you want to enjoy the Gelato Festival at the best we recomend you to buy the special Card in the squares where the Festival takes place. Using this card you will have the opportunity to taste your most favorite gelato at the many stands of the festival! Opening times: from 23 to 27 May, every day from 12 am to 12 pm!
Enjoy your Gelato!
