New location? Nearest Camp di Fiori

Seems like there are many blue ice locations, and the gelato seems to vary . . . we stopped at two locations between Piazza Navona and Campo di Fiori. The first location (furthest from Campo di Fiori did NOT look attractive . . the gelato looked "tired." The newer (apparently) location closer to... read more

One of the best places to get ice cream/gelato in Rome! Kinder/Hazelnut/Snickers! All very hard to beat. We went here a few times as it was better than others we tried. Thanks Blue Ice!

My husband and I stopped for gelato here more times than I'd like to admit...but there were so many delicious flavors to try, and every flavor we tried was awesome!

You should try the passionfruit icecream. Just delicious. They have a side selection and the prices are reasonable. We went to the shop on Trastevere, and after getting the Icecream we sat outside Santa Maria Church. Beautiful!

There you can get the largest portion of ice cream ever (and i’m talking about the small one). There is enormous selection of flavours (it's really hard to decide) and they are really delicious.

A wide variety of flavors. There are lots of branches all over Rome. Each branch has other flavors I would recommend to go every time to another branch to experience flavors. Best taste according to my opinion is kinder and Irish Cream.

The walking around in Rome made us hungry each day and a brilliant way to cool down is to have, Gelato of course. We stopped by this little place Blue Ice. Great service, friendly and most of all amazing gelato. Thank you for a great experience. Cheers.

Saw someone coming out with huge cone piled with ice-cream, too tempted to keep walking past. Large choice, everything labelled in Italian and English. Tourist prices but worth it!

We stumbled upon this gelato shop by accident and we're so glad we did. We ate gelato in 4 cities during our visit to Italy and this was one of our favorites.

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.
