Gelato in Rome
My gelato pics have been getting a bit of buzz on social media lately so thought I would share some of them on here with you all.
I’m a dessert person (as many of you will know or have guessed) but gelato was never really my thing. Until I moved to Italy that is.
I don’t really discriminate (well it has to be real deal gelato of course) but in Rome, two of my favorites are in Trastevere: Fatamorgana and Fior di Luna. Both serve up authentic gelato with all natural ingredients.
I also love Giolitti in Testaccio, Gelateria del Teatro (Largo Argentina) and some new entries like La Romana (Ostiense), Carapina (Campo de Fiori) and Pico (Piazza Bologna).
Here are some recent gelato pics to feed your eyes and soul!
