Via del Governo Vecchio may well have the highest concentration of top trip advisor eateries within a small radius in the world. For ice cream, it's Frigidarium, an unassuming little shop marked out only by the constant queue outside. Don't let that stop you though,...More

It has good ice creams, but for my taste they are too sweet. The price is correct, sometimes you have to wait a little.

The flavours are great and prices are good. Definitely high quality gelato that should exist in more cities!

Gelato here is delicious. The staff was super sweet. They let me take my time to decide. Finally went with Hazelnut. And it was simply mind blowing!!

Probably the best Gelateria of the very many we sampled. Rivals the one across the street from the Bronze Gate of the Vatican. The cherry vanilla was so good I actually had it 3 days in a row. This place will instantly raise your faith...More

There are a few good gelato places and you can't go wrong with any of them and this is one of them. You will find each place usually has a flavor that is your favorite or stands out over the others and it was true...More

This is the best icecream we had during our two weeks holiday in Italy. The flavours are outstanding! Pistache and coconut were our favourites. Highly recommended!

The icecream was to die for, and for no extra charge you get your lovely cone dipped in either white or dark chocolate. The metaphorical cherry on top. Can aboslutely recommend the mango flavour! Be prepared to queue for a while.

This place is amazing! Is there usually a long line? Yes. Is it worth it? Yes. Hard chocolate shelled goodness covers the gelato and it melts in your mouth. Why are you still sitting here reading this? Go. Go now!

Super ice cream, a lot of people waiting in the line, but the 4 people staff managed everybody in a short time

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
