I Scream U Scream we all scream for Ice cream

This place is worth the 30 minute wait in the hot spring sun. Flavours are broad to satisfy everyones tastes. After the horrific tour (separate review) we did this place was needed.

Had delicious gelato at Old Bridge. There was a line but it moved quickly. Loved their amaretto, pistachio, and pear. A steal for three scoops for only 3 euro!

When en-route for the Vatican Museum or tour of the St Peter’s Square, make sure you line up (I mean line up because there are always long queus) for a sample of Old Bridge Gelato. It certainly is one of the best- if not the best gelato we’ve tasted during our week long stay at the city. In fact, we... More

We saw this gelateria was recommended and having sampled delicious scoops on our ambling through Rome we had to give it a go to see what all the hype was about. We got there for 8.45pm and there was still a queue down the street, looking good! We queued, got our 3 scoops and retreated to a bench to sample.... More

Delicious icecream. The place is very small and most the times is full of people. You can't sit there, so you must buy and take away. Try to choose times when it's not so crowded, like lunchtime or in the morning. Really good!

So of the myriad of places for ice creams in the city this one was right on our door. On arriving at about 10.30 on Friday night there was a queue outside the shop. We went out and coming back about 1.30 there was still a small queue of people waiting. We had an amazing value €2.50 cone each which... More

Definitely one of the best gelaterias in rome. Its located just outside the vatican, and seems to always have a queue of people waiting to get their generous portion of gelato. They have lots of flavours, and all equally as good. My favorite has to be the blueberry yoghurt, but the rest are great as well. Its very good value... More

We have tried a few Gelato and Old Bridge is definitely our top 3 favourites. Located just outside the junction next to the Vatican Museum. The portion is very generous and we definitely like the Pistachio flavour among all. Super delicious and definitely worth the wait as the queue was rather long.

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
