We did the 1hr tour and it was really interesting to learn about the history of gelato. The staff were incredibly nice and even helped us order a cab. Most importantly the gelato was amazing! €7 for the tour and 3 scoops of gelato!

Very interesting museum lead by a knowledgeable guide who included the kids in everything . The family gelato making was good fun, our two daughters 6 & 8 loved it, as much as the adults.P
