There was one place, 'Grom', which is famous for its ice cream in Florence. I didn't really have any expections, I mean come on, it's ice cream, how good can it get? Oh boy was I wrong. The only (though seemingly inappropriate) thing I can compare this gelato to is the worlds best steak that quite literally melts as soon as it hits your tongue. This analogy, which probably doesn't even count as an analogy, definitely does not do this ice cream justice...but I hope you get the gist of its awesome-ness. Luckily this place was just around the corner from our hotel. Please do take the time to admire the photo of me chomping said ice cream down elegantly below.
I was so sad to leave! Seriously, I would've happily spent the entire summer in that small little city. It's definitely given me a kick up the backside to learn Italian alongside my Spanish. They both use the same word for 'yes' so it shouldn't be that difficult right...? Click below to see some of the photos from the trip!

Beyond amazing gelato. Fruit of the Woods is the worlds best flavour.
Florence has the most amazing tiramisu...EVER.
A beautiful horse. Random but necessary.
This is what pretty much every cafe window looked like.
Ponte Vecchio - possibly my new favourite spot on Planet Earth.
The aforementioned elegant chomp-down of gelato.
