The best part about visiting Italy (apart from the history, people and food….errr…everything) is that even after a heavy meal you can burn all those calories by walking. And that’s when you look for gelato! In Rome, it’s never far away. Every part of the eternal city is filled with great Gelaterie and there’s so much to choose from!
Best Places for Gelato in Rome:
I chanced upon Fatamorgana one afternoon in the Monti neighborhood of Rome (next to the Colosseum). Though they have two more stores in Rome, this one was not overrun by tourists. I saw locals coming with school children and older ladies getting their fix for gelato. Fatamorgana is an excellent choice for gelato in Rome with vegan flavors too. I recommend you to try lemon peel, cheesecake, horseradish and zabaoine!

Gelateria del Teatro:
In a quaint cobbled stoned street filled with antique stores, Gelateria del Teatro is a wonderful find! The natural fresh gelato is amazing and I highly love their fig, melon and ricotta flavors. Pick your gelato and find a place to sit to people watch.
Gelateria del Teatro, Via dei Coronari, 65/66, Rome
So close to Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori, Ice cRome is another great find to have gelato in Central Rome! I highly recommend trying the black cherry flavor – it is simply divine! Thanks to Linda for recommending this place.
Via del Governo Vecchio, 85 Rome
Fior di Luna:
In the ivy clad streets of Rome, is Fior di Luna. I highly recommend trying their banana, persimmon and melon flavors. Its one of the best end to a fabulous evening in Rome.
