Ice Cream Shops


The authentic Florentine handcrafted ice-cream

In via Isole delle Stinche, a stone’s throw from the Bargello Museum, every day the Vivoli ice-cream shop welcomes its many guests. Florentines and tourists come in droves to crowd in front of the counter where are exposed, with all their colors, ice cream, cakes and pastries, semifreddi… Is there a specific reason that justifies so much crowd? One only: quality.

It was the distant 1929 when Serafino Vivoli decided to move from Pelago to Florence, leaving to the brothers the management of the family dairy and opening one in the historical center. The new company knew immediate success so that even Serafino’s brother, Raffaello, moved to the Tuscan capital giving way, in ’32, to the production of ice cream.

The activity of the ice cream shop continued to grow and expand, opening a branch in Saltino, but abruptly interrupting due to the famous flood that hit the city in the mid-60s. The shop had to be renovated and, putting itself into a commitment, the family managed to reopen its doors just two weeks after the disaster and then, in the ’70s, became a popular meeting place, and continued its activity up to the present day.

Today, Vivoli’s ice cream has the same uncontaminated freshness of many years ago, all the fruit of great constancy, a great passion and, above all, a strong love that links the local historian to its international clientele, which includes both the people of district, which has frequented it for years, that tourists have read on their guides.

A genuine ice cream, in short, strictly artisanal and always fresh. The milk is all Italian, the cream is always fresh, the seasonal fruit and eggs from farms on the ground. For each type of event, then, Vivoli can make available its picturesque cart and make personalized cakes, including wedding cakes. In short, there is really nothing missing at this historic Florentine address!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences florence has to offer.
