Top quality Gelato quite close to the Colosseum/Roman forum, easy to find and fairly priced. Makes for a nice rest stop while walking around Rome.

From the 3 days I was spending wondering around the beautiful streets of Rome, I came to one conclusion: most of the tourist that are visiting Rome will find themselves eat ice cream at least once at time of their visit- it's something that you just must mark down as part of the whole Italian experience and according to that...

Great stop for yummy Gelato after a hot day of touring the Colosseum and Roman Forum. I've had many Gelatos while living in Italy and this has been the best one! Worth a try!

A great ice-cream stop on a really bustling road in the centre of Rome. I had two scoops in a tub and couldn't resist having four more in a mega cone. The guy was very friendly. If you like ice-cream, it's a must stop. And I am an ice-cream addict!

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than fresh, homemade ice cream. Served in a cup or a cone, you have your choice of several delicious flavors. Stop in and try some, you'll be glad you did.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
