The trick with both of the gellaterias on this corner is to get into the line while it is short, before a tour guide leads an entire bus full of people into it. For us, this one had the short line when it came time...More

Pricey, but delicious ice cream! Wide range of flavors and menu items to suit any palate. Definitely worth it to stop for a coffee or an ice cream. Located in the cute town square.

Piazza Cisterna is lucky enough to be blessed with two out of this world gelato outlets. It's like Ali v Frazier every day, with the two best heavyweights going toe to toe. Superb gelato. You will not be disappointed!

On the terrace, in the corner, we had some shade. We ordered a very nice caffe freddo and some cantucci cookies. Nice drink and not to expensive. You can watch people passing by (busses and busses full are dropped here).
