gelato in Florence?

collegefoodie | Oct 28, 2003 06:24 AM

After reading the previous threads about gelato in Florence, I am confused about what the best places are. I'll be there for three days and would love suggestions for the absolute best gelato in (or outside of) the city. Is Vivoli really overrated? What's the deal with Carande (sp?) place that's a bit outside of the center?
Also, any suggestions on places for excellent (but relatively inexpensive) pasta? I'm on a college budget but love things like homemade pasta with porcini...
Any outstanding bakeries that I shouldn't miss?
