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

The Gelato is as good as everyone says. It was SO delicious. We tried it last year(2017) and now my daughter is at Down Town Disney in Orlando and what did she find, VIVOLI! It is VIVOLI's only other location.

How disappointing to finally find the gelateria that is supposed to be 'the best in Florence and possible Italy' - only to be served something that was soooo sweet and sickly that I had to keep drinking water. It was also very soggy because of...More

So I think this is the best gelato out of the six different places (in three days) we’ve tried while vacationing in Florence. I think I have the right to say that considering how many we’ve tried in just a few days.

We did a self guided gelato tour on this trip to Italy, trying some daily, and sometimes a few times a day. This, last stop for most of us, was our favorite, here at Vivoli. The flavors were so fresh and good. There are always...More

Wow, everything is freshly made and you can taste it! Also very affordable we only paid 1,50 for a nice cup of tea and one scoop of ice cream is only 2,00 euros, worth it!!

This was recommended to us by our travel consultant, and confirmed on our map of Florence as probably the best gelateria. We enjoyed a relaxing sit down break after visiting Santa Croce. Great ice cream.

My husband did some research to find the best gelato in the area. Fresh, homemade, and delicious. I had the chocolate moose and coconut while he had the stracciatella and another flavor. Best gelato yet. Very happy we came here. Also we noticed that only...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.
