top 3 gelatos in rome

We are introducing a new series based on our trip to Rome, Naples and Capri, where we will be discussing everything from food to travel tips! Here is the first of our series and what better to start with than Gelatos! When its too hot and you've been walking around since 9 am Gelatos are the best solution to everything --and I mean everything (aching feet, back and knees, hunger or even lack of hunger, over stimulation or not enough the list goes on!) Since we are avid Gelato consumers anyways (check out our Gelato post in Vancouver) we obviously were up to the challenge of finding the best Gelatos in Rome (and believe me we had many!) Here are our top 3:

1. Giolitti : This much hyped and very famous gelateria from Audrey Hepburn's and Gregory Peck's Roman Holiday is worth the fame and name. Not only are the Gelatos great the interior is phenomenal with a 50's classy feel. Word of caution, you'll have to pay to sit inside--but a gelato is best eaten when outside to people watch! This is also the oldest ice cream parlour in Rome--definitely a good visit! 2. Gelato di San Crispino: This was lauded as the best-Gelato-you-will-ever-have-type-place and guess what--it was the best gelato we ever had! So much so we went back twice! Its a few streets down from the Trevi fountain and the line up goes outside the narrow shop and out but its stracciatella is worth the wait! Caution, it is pricey! 3. Gelateria Valentino: This gelateria gave a nice, small, homely feeling but at the same time is located off the Trevi Fountain so easy to access. The atmosphere is friendly and the gelato is also fresh!

Stay tuned for more Italy Travel Tips coming up on the blog!
