Absolutely amazing gelato and at an amazing price-3e for two flavours plus dipped in chocolate! Have to say we were a bit confused on prices and how many scoops you got for which size cone and we weren’t aware of the toppings available-so my husband...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

Hello and sorry for the delayed reply. Thanks for your request but it is impossible to ship our product, because to do so we should cool it so much that it would ruin, but still thanks for your request that still honors us... More
