This is one of the touristy spots that is all over the internet that actually lived up to the hype. Well worth the wait, Frigidarium was so good that we went just about every day. Hands down, they had the best gelato we had throughout Italy and a lot of really interesting flavors (all of which were better than the... More

If you're looking for the best gelato in Italy, look no further. La Gelateria Frigidarium has the best gelato in all of Italy. Make sure you taste the ricotta and sesame and the dark chocolate with candied orange skins. A match made in heaven!!!

I've lived in Rome for a while, but I had never been to this part of the Rione Parione, close to Piazza Navona. This gelateria is just a modest small hole in a wall, but the long lines outside made me wonder. Good thing I did it, because I enjoyed a whole new level of the gelato experience: strudel ice...

Pay a visit and you would definitely return - like we did. Its the best gelato we had in all of Rome. The crowd outside this place at 10 in the night is proof enough of what you can expect. Its a less than 10 min walk from Piazza Navona. We found the Blueberry Fruit sorbet and Caramel gelato absolutely... More

This gelato was one of the best that we had for the two weeks spent in Italy. Recommended by the VRBO manager as a down the street gelato we would have walked blocks to go here. In fact we often did saying let's wait to get back to Frigidarium. With gelato made on site it didn't disappoint. If you get... More

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.
