Firenze Gelato Festival 2011

Events, Things to Do — By katiegreenaway on May 25, 2011 at 7:05 am

As I reported last year, Firenze Gelato Festival was a big hit and here we again at the 2nd annual festival. This year it isn’t as big but that is alright. The festival will take place in Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza Pitti. There will be laboratories to view how the ice cream is made and what is the special touch in making it. The ice cream also will come from all over Italy to participate in the Festival and there will be more gelaterie than last year. This year the gelato card for 5 tastes is €7,00 instead of €5,00 like last year. You can purchase it at any of the info points in Piazza Pitti or Piazza della Repubblica on the days of the festival.

Once you purchase your gelato card you are provided with:

  • Magnetic Gelato Card of Firenze Gelato Festival 2011
  • Gadget of the official Festival
  • 5 samples of tasty ice cream at the ice cream in Piazza Pitti, at the stand of Sammontana in Piazza della Repubblica and the ice cream at gelaterie that accept the Gelato Card.
  • Enter the “Learn, Taste, Vote and Win!”

Each card purchased is rechargeable at the info points in Piazza Pitti and Piazza della Repubblica.

Check it out this weekend! Starting from May 25th til May 29th.

Cooling off in Florence never felt so good!
