Best Gelato in Rome! I ordered Chocolate&Rum and Mixed berry. Creamy chocolate with alcohol is too die for. Sour berry but not too sweet is perfect. There are also many interesting flavors but I don’t have a chance to try yet. Highly recommend!

Visited after St. Peter's square and needed refuelling! Great value and amazing ice cream. Serve coffee and biscuits too. But no milk in the coffee! Still didn't detract from a great visit

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
