it looks too pretty to be true – to modern and neat to be delicious. but it is.

gelateria santa trinita sits on the edge of the arno, on the corner of the ponte santa trinta (didn’t really take a great leap of the imagination to come up with that name…). as phil and i came stumbling home after an exquisite dinner at a friend’s house/palazzo (as you do…), we found ourselves queuing for some ice cream (again, as you do…) in this new gelateria we had not yet tried. i had the yogurt and ‘chocolate fondante’ (melting chocolate), and phil had the cookies and something else… anyways, it was fabulous.

so fabulous, in fact, that a few nights later, as i came home stumbling-ish after aperitivo in fiesole, alone, i too found myself in the queue for an ice cream at gelateria santa trinita. and here, my mind was blown: the limone was like no other i had ever tasted, whilst the house specialty – the santa trinita – a vanilla base with swirls of chocolate and caramel – blew me away.

unfortunately, there are no pictures of these delicious ice cream experiences. too tasty, no time to waste.

so instead, here is a midnight view of the oltrarno, between ponte vecchio and ponte santa trinita. even more beautiful when you know that delicious ice cream awaits just on the other side.
