Festival of Gelato comes to Florence

From May 28th to 30th the city of Florence will be transformed into gelato lover’s paradise. Some say The Festival of Gelato is the most important event to arrive in Florence in 2010. This is probably an exaggeration? but it will be lots of fun!

 Entrance to the festival is completely free, but for gelato tasting you will have to purchase a card. Gelato in Italian literally means “frozen”, but it basically used to indicate Italian ice cream. One of the basic differences between gelato and the ice cream found in other countries is that it doesn’t contain as much air, and is therefore more intense in flavor. Also, gelato is healthier than American-style ice cream since it is made with all natural ingredients and contains much less fat as well. It really is the perfect guilt-free indulgence!
