My review will be very short. For twenty years I had dreamed to return to Florence and revisit Vivoli for its gelato with its exploding tastes in my palate. I did it within hours after I set my step in Florence. That's amore.

We started at Vivoli on our gelato sampling adventure. A bit hectic and definitely they serve a lit of people. I felt a bit rushed but the gelato was superbly smooth and fresh. Also there are some tables.

Hard to choose from so many options to taste. I chose chocolate, pistaccio and some flavour with rum and all were delicious!
