Wish I could move in next door!

Genuinely upset i can't go back every day to eat more. You know when there are locals queuing to get some that it had to be good! Was perfect, cheap and they were incredibly friendly despite language barrier.

I really liked this one! The best ice cream I tasted in Rome! and really quite a range of different flavors. They have a white/dark chocolate topping or whipped cream! I would go every day if i was near by :D NOT TO MISS

Forget about looking for the gelato place mentioned in Eat Pray Love, perhaps Elizabeth Gilbert was searching for love since she didn't find this gem of a place! We just stumbled upon it and didn't want to share (which we usually do!) - don't remember which flavor I got - but all I remember is that it was one dang... More

Just as good as advertised.. I recommend trying the more generic flavors (chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut etc) rather than trying the oddball ones (Nutella, bueno etc) in order to have the most authentic and delicious gelato experience :)

This place was recommended by fellow travellers. Before we found it we tried another gelato place, Giolitti, near parliament house which was recommended in a Rick Steves guide book. We were a bit dissapointed with it. This place had a short queue but it was orderly and you paid after you had chosen what you wanted. The ice cream was... More

While there are many good ice-cream places in Rome, this trumps them all. Not only for the ice-cream itself but also for the fact that you can cover it in melted chocolate (for no extra cost) and the price was incredibly reasonable. Not to be missed!

Saw this on trip advisor and had to give it a whirl and was only 3 minutes form my hotel. Was epic and loads of flavours to choose from. There's a queue but was worth it and went down quick. Initially we got out €10 to pay for 2 x 3 scoops with sauce and toppings, we quickly got out... More

Goodness gracious me! Quite possibly the nicest gelato I have ever had. Top quality ingredients throughout yet so cheap! I had a 3 scoop waffle cone, with biscotti, white chocolate and hazelnut and a speciality of caramel and chocolate biscuit and only cost €3! Bargain and delicious at the same time!

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
