I have been living in Italy off and on for many years. By far, the best gelato is Vivoli. Don't pass up the opportunity to try the rice gelato. SImply the best!

The debate over the best gelato in Florence comes down to a short list of a few places. (I know this from extensive online research and the recommendations of infallible foodie friends.) I went to all of those places at least twice. Hey, research is...More

Went looking for this place after reading about it in a guidebook. And I am SO glad we found it! The gelato here was, hands down, the best gelato I've eaten to date. I've lived in Europe for the last 4 years and this was...More

Let me start my review by stating that I specifically sought out Vivoli after watching "I'll Have What Phil's Having" on Netflix. And it is clear from the reviews, many others do as well. And there's a reason why this place is still in business...More

This is an aesthetically interesting place, in an interesting part of the city, sort of. We were told Vivoli was the spot for the best gelato in Firenze. Oops... what we had was no different from what your kids might make when attempting to make...More

I was here some week ago. The service could be better but the gelato was very good and the coffee too. Right price.

Unfortunately, we are not impressed with the quality. Overpriced, overcrowded, stingy portions and not the greatest in flavours. Too much sugar, a bit powdery. Something was wrong. Rather average ice creams. Having tried different place recommended by the local person, where you literally have 6...More

Maybe you need to be Phil and have a camera crew with you to truly have what Phil had. The servers were not happy people, not friendly, not patient...yuck. What a DOWNER after seeing the experience Phil had at this gelateria! My Crema was good...More

Went for gelato but saw the pastries and decided to have coffee and pastries instead. Great decision, the pastries were amazing, the filling was heavenly. Came back later for the gelato which was the best we have had in Italy. Only regret was we didn't...More

This is some of the best gelato of Florence! I chose dark chocolate, coconut, and rice as my flavors. I have not seen rice as a flavor in any of the other gelato shops so I was intrigued. I was not disappointed! FYI ~ you...More

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.
