Last went to Vivoli's as a student in Florence 40 years ago! Enjoyed two visits back on a recent trip. Thought it just as delicious with some lovely flavours to choose from. I had a medium cup with 5 flavours piled high. Yummy. Particularly loved the pear and caramel but everyone will discover their own favourite.

Creamy, smooth and flavorful at the same time, that's the difference between this gelato and others, especially those nearer to tourist sights. We tried many places before we made it to vivoli and are sorry we didn't try it first.

Once you find it you won't be disappointed. Gelato is fantastic. The only reason I did not rate it a five is because I had better in 2 places in Sicily, but, I think it may be the best in Florence. Also, somewhat less expensive than many of the gelato places here.

We went there full of enthusiasm but after tasting so many delicious gelato in Italy this was mediocre. Nice flavours but not as exotic as so many others we have been at. Eduardo down the road was way way better .... It has crepes to die for and biological gelato and you at duomo. You go there rather than this place

This is a must-do for us when we are in Florence. Everyone agrees it's the best gelato they've ever had. My fave is the Pera Caramello - it's like eating the best pear you've ever had. To find the place go down either side of the Bargello Museum to Isola delle Stinche (two blocks) and turn right. You'll find it in a couple of minutes.
