For gelato cognoscenti, some of the best ice cream in town is served up in this brightly lit, modern space close to the Palazzo Vecchio. Carapina adheres to slow food principals such as strict seasonality and responsible sourcing in a deliberately limited choice of flavors, which changes regularly according to market availability. While you will find plenty of familiar flavors in the old-fashioned metal tubs (pistachio, chocolate, hazelnuts), others really push the boundaries: gelato with extra virgin olive oil or Parmesan, anyone?
