We arrived here and it was closed, to our dismay. We hung around the area in the hope of it opening at midday, and sure enough, it did! Chocolate mousse, meringue and rice flavors are by far the best. Definitely make this the top of your list-of-things-to-do in Florence!

We went here on recommendation from Rick Steve's Italy. We were not disappointed. We went back a couple of years later and it was still excellent. A couple of tips-you need to pay for your gelato first and then go and give the receipt to the people at the gelato or coffee bar. Secondly, while looking for other good gelato... More

Tasty and lots of flavours to choose from. The best we tried in Florence. They serve in cups - value for your money. I loved "Bacci" flavour and a "wild berry" flavour. Yum Yum - a must when in Florence.

Vivoli is hands down the best and most authentic gelato in Florence. No cones, only cups ranging in price from Euro 2.50.-Euro 6. There are now many new gelaterias everywhere in the city, but none compare; why do they dare?

The gelato here was very, very good, and with a great selection. I loved the chocolate with hot pepper. The price was 2.50euro for a small cup with two flavors. My friend enjoyed their pastry and coffee.

This was the 2nd best gelato in Italy we had and the best in Florence, followed by Perche No. I got chocolate and my husband got lemon. The shop is small and skinny and you have to basically go and wander around Florence and eat, no big deal I prefer doing that any way. The shop is busy with customers... More

I thought the gelato was great and not far from Hotel Santa Croce. Once you have your gelato, you can sit outside and enjoy the view.

The place is a little bit hard to find since it is not in the vicinity of the main attractions in Florence but it is worth the walk. You might find it a little bit a little expensive for Ice cream but keep in mind this is not just any ice cream!!! They have a wide selection of tastes and... More
