Gelateria De' Coltelli

Italian gelato was invented in the 15th century, and is today famous all over the world. In Pisa, this is a great place to try it, as they use fresh fruit in the making of this popular dessert for the heat of the summer.


In Italy, coffee is just as important as pasta. If you want to act like a local when ordering your coffee, there are some unwritten rules you should keep in mind. Cappuccino, Caffelatte or any other kind of coffee with a lot of milk should only be drunk in the mornings, before 11 am. When you order an espresso, don't use the word espresso, which actually is just a technical phrase. Ask the barista for simply "un caffè". Last but not least, when ordering "un caffè" you don't sit down. Stand at the bar and have your coffee while standing. Whether you feel like blending in or sitting down at a table, there are plenty of cafes to choose from in Pisa.
