I don’t know about you, but the gelato is one of the first things that come to my mind when people talk about Rome.The city is historic and a true open-air museum. Going from an attraction to another, nothing better than stop for ice cream whenever it’s possible. Apart from the hot weather of this city, gelato is essential to truly live the local experience! You find below my five favorite options for ice cream in Rome.
Il Gelato di San Crispino
Il Gelato di San Crispino has five stores in Rome. The original and most famous of these is close to the Trevi Fountain. The ice cream is really delicious! There is another shop near the Pantheon which may be a great idea if you’re visiting the monument.
Already a large group of gelaterias, GROM is present in several city outside Italy. The flavors are great and very authentic! It has many units in themost famous cities in Italy. In Rome, you’ll find shops of GROM everywhere. One of them is located at Piazza Navona and, if you’re visiting the place, you can go there to taste this amazing gelato!
Many people prefer to stop in this shop for chocolates, but the ice cream here is also wonderful! In golden tones, the store decoration is really beautiful. Venchi also has many gelaterias around Rome. One of them is near the Panthéon.
Looking like a café, Ciampini has tables in a very nice Piazza where you can sit and simply pass the time. It’s an ideal place if you want to rest a little bit and just spend time talking with someone tasting ice cream.
With very natural ingredients, Fatamorgana is one of the best gelato options near the Piazza di Spagna. It’s woth it to try from the most classic flavors to the more different ones!
