    You only get to have one spoon as a taster so we bought 5 single cups so we could try more! They are all pretty special but the best were Rice and Amareno. Worth the trip out to find this place

    A must-destination year round. Vivoli is the oldest gelateria in Florence, a real institution. Opened in 1929 it has been popular ever since. They do ice cream tastings and workshops. Get yours now! Read more

    Best gelato in Florence and maybe anywhere. Such a charming place too. If they have Riso (rice) get it! The best combo is Riso, Crema and one if their passion fruit flavored. Enjoy!!!

    "Apparently ths oldest gelato shop in Florence. Everything started in the year 1930 when Raffaello opened a creamery which later turned into a gelateria."
  • Jenna Rose R.
    Even though gelaterias are everywhere in Florence, just one bite convinced us not to go anywhere else for gelato for the duration of our trip, even though it was a hike from our apartment.

    Best gelato in Florence. Period. It isn't about spectacle. It's about taste. Very fresh and authentic. The pistachio and wild strawberry are a MUST.

    An absolute to-do when you're visiting Florence and you like ice cream. Also not that expensive to be "the best ice cream shop in the world".

    Whoever reckons this isn't as good as Grom is wrong. Best gelato ever. The citrus & ginger literally changed my life. Peach also sublime.

    Based on 1930, the most popular gelateria in Italy and the most tasty as well... Try this one and you'll never want another ice-cream

    Cream flavor is awesome-but there is no milk chocolate (hence the plain chocolate didnt taste that good for me)
  • Cameron M.
    The crema is fantastic. Make sure to pay at the cashier FIRST. Then go to the case and tell them what you want.

    Best ice cream in the city of delicious ice cream. Festina Lente is a must, also the plum sorbet.
  • Aleksandra Ž.
    My fave is festina lente aka ginger & orange and the unmissable semifreddo di cafè. Delicious!

    Try "crema" and "riso" flavours. Florentines consider Vivoli too expensive and touristy but these two flavors are the ones of my childhood and haven't changed ever since!

    Good taste and decent portions. However, it is an OK gelato. A bit watery, with crystals and not the best texture. Nearby there are better choices.

    Only one thing you ABSOLUTELY have to Know: Vivoli is usually closed the last three weeks of August, which is kind of weird if this is supposed to be for tourists...
