Gelato Tour and Making Class in Florence

Florence Gelato Tour and Making Class with FOF

Discover the best ice cream shops and makers on our Gelato Tour in Florence. We will finish the tour by learning how to make your favorite gelato with the help of a famous gelatiere (gelato maker).

The history of Florence is stricly connected to the one of gelato. During the Italian Renaissance, alchemist Cosimo Ruggieri (d. 1615) created the first-ever gelato (fior di latte) at the court of Catherine de’ Medici. Other sources credit mannerist architect Bernardo Buontalenti for the invention of gelato alla crema, the popular egg cream flavor whose recipe (crema Buontalenti) was supposedly circulating since 1565.
