The best ice cream in the world, bar none. When you order the ice cream ask for the fresh cream on top: it's a must

You will be so spoilt for choice here as they have so many different flavours and they're all delicious. The price is so good for the amount of ice cream you get per scoop and there's also a few different cone options. The Gelateria itself...More

Famous as being one of the oldest Gelaterias in Rome, it lives up to its reputation! The Hazelnut and Espresso flavors were the standouts in particular. It also happens to be one of the cheapest gelaterias we visited in Rome.

Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to

It may contains both pig's skin and cow's bones, so you'd be better off not eating gelato due to religion reasons.
