Like many other places in Florence, it may not be open when you show up. If it is open though, you're in luck. The gelato is very good, certainly above average. They have a few orange based flavours that are specifically good, as is the chocolate-cherry. The ordering process is bit convoluted. There's a small sign that sends you back... More

A little of the beaten path but well with the effort to find. Delicious flavours and lots to choose from. Very good coffee also. Feels very authentic and not so touristy as a lot of areas.

A fiorentino told us this stop is a favorite for locals because they use all fresh ingredients. It was very good. Unusual process in that you pay at the cashier first, then take your receipt to the gelato case to make your selection. No matter what size you purchase you can mix and match gelato. It's a great way to... More

This is without a doubt the best ice cream parlor in all of Italy. The amount of flavors and varieties available are mind-boggling not to mention the quality and taste of essentially every flavor they have. You cannot go wrong picking any of them.

We went Vivoli following the reviews. Although, the ice cream is only average and we won't come back again. There is much more Gelaterias in Florence!

Probably one of the best ice-creams that I've ever tried. Not a huge number of flavors but these that they have are absolutely fantastic. Staff nice, warm and genuine. Warmly recommend. Skip the city center and touristic places and discover Vivoli.

This ice-cream shop is a little off the beaten track, but very close to Santa Croce. There's lots of choice and it's delicious, well work seeking out.

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
