Amazing gelato abounds in Italy — and Tuscany is no exception. Enjoying all these little tastes, I ask Nicola what led him to the gelato business. Nicola makes his gelato from scratch each morning, which means it’s not available until around noon. I’ve blogged about Italian gelato before, including advice for how to find the best gelato anywhere, and — for a laugh — a surreal tale of when I became embroiled in a dispute between one small town’s gelato artists. Our new Best of Tuscany in 12 Days Tour — which begins in 2020 — incorporates many vivid experiences in Italy’s heartland…including many, many opportunities to sample Italy’s finest edible art, gelato.
