Vivoli was the first gelateria in Florence and it's been there for more than 75 years. And apparently they have been using the same recipes for 75 years. I have visited more than 100 gelaterias all over Italy (I'm crazy about gelato!) and there is...More

Having sampled ice cream from a parlour near the Trevi Fountain in Rome which turned out to be nothing special, I feel I may declare with confidence that Il Gelato from Vivoli is top notch Italian ice cream. I went for the smallest tub for...More

Every time we go on a trip to a European country, my family and I always try several different ice cream places. Vivoli was definitely the best ice cream we had in Florence!

Not all ice cream is created equal, but this is superb. Many interesting flavors to choose from and some with out milk that are just as good. Just make sure you pay BEFORE you order.

I was here about ten years ago and had an excellent gelato. This time I found it too sweet and sickly I think they are catering to the American palate, it's a pity because it was really good. But there's always lots of gelati around.

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.
