Read tons of incredible reviews about this place...didn’t fit the expectations. The portions are SUPER small and the flavors don’t have anything special. The staff is not very friendly

Many kinds of gelato, unfortunately names only in italian. After waiting in line for gelato we found out we need to pay first. All flavours we had were very good. For me, I prefer more creamy base-this was too watery.

The interior is worth a visit: lovely original fittings. To see it properly, you'll need to order an ice-cream in a tub (pay first then choose your flavour), but make it a small one because the flavours are not exciting or vivid and the texture...More

Vivoli is always my first stop in Florence - managed four times in three days this time. I usually just have sorbets, but this time branched out into pistacio, nociella, coffee, as well as mango, raspberry, strawberry, etc. Vivoli maintains its quality, character and atmosphere....More

A friend who had lived in Tuscany for a while told us about Vivoli before our trip here. We finally worked our way over to it today. After all the gelato we've eaten so far (and it's been a lot!) I thought they were all...More

Wonderful spot for an excellent gelato. I hear its the oldest in Florence and featured on Netflex "I'll have what Phil's having" Off the beaten path but very walkable from central area. Go if you can. You won't be disappointed.

Yummy & perfect ice cream. If I could leave it at that I would, as this would be a fair representation of my reaction to this place, it is definitely worth seeking out to try some authentic, seasonal and frankly delicious ice cream.

According to my guide book, this is the best ice cream parlour in the world so I was naturally keen to give it a try whilst visiting the city, although having found two more in San Gimignano which make the same claim it’s difficult to...More

We heard about this place on a TV show called " I'll have what Phil's having." I cannot say enough about this place. Homemade gelato. Oh my! I would go back to Florence just to have the ice cream.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
