Gelati worth getting fat on

One reason why we chose our hotel was the proximity of Grom. We love their natural ingredients and the excellent unfussy presentation. They are light and not oversweet. I love the high cocoa content chocolate sorbet in particular

We loved the gelato here, although ask for your panna (whipped cream) on the side, they pile it on. Every flavor is super good! We had tiramisu and hazelnut.

Intensely flavored dark chocolate. Creamy stracciatella. Very interesting pistachio. Hmmm. There are more flavors. It's only a block from the vaporetto stop. We'll have to go back a couple more times. Yes, there are many conveniently located gelaterias in Venice, but these are great flavors worth a trip.

Grom Gelato in the Santa Lucia Railway Station in Venice is a delicious place to cool off, re-energize and their gelato is downright delicious. This was just a counter - no seating - 2.50 euros for a very small cup. Add on another half a euro for fresh whipped cream and you are in heaven! It may be a bit... More

Interesting to compare Grom Gelato on site with other Italian gelato shops. Grom does well. Intense flavours, gelato with added ingredients e.g. Candied fruit, set Grom apart from much of the inferior stuff sold locally.

GROM is a franchise started in 2003 and seems to have done quite well considering the expansion of this franchise throughout Italy over the past decade. You can now find branches in many cities in Italy including a few in Venice, including this one at Campo San Barnaba in Dorsoduro. We have enjoyed stops at this GROM during a past... More

Tasty ice cream that the servers sort of whip up to make it creamy before putting on your cone or in your cup. Worth a visit!

The flavors are pretty strong, but the gelato has a bit of a gummy texture. They must use more corn flour than typical.

Simply the best ice cream on the planet. We were told to go here by our tour guide and OMG was she right! I would actually go out of my way in each city we went to in Italy just to find Grom... the lines are long but it is definitely worth the wait. Some of their flavours are just... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
