Delicious gelato Many gelato shops around, but this one stands out. You can taste the quality of the ingredients. Prices are very good too, and you get good quantity. Highly recommended.

Walked 7 mins with my brother to this place and bought the €3 cups. The Frididarium flavoured one is so yummy, I had to buy one cup for my mum and ran all the way back to apartment because she didn't come with us, and it was melting. Really good one of the best gelatos!

This gelateria had a line waiting outside with both tourists and italians. So we figured it must be quite good. You have to order a minimum of 3 scoops but they are most certainly worth it. The ice cream with the cookies in it was by far the best. But the hazelnut flavour is also to die for (in most... More

Lots of flavours to choose from (there is 1 section for fruity flavours and 2 was the regular section.. Also, they added new flavours everyday).. We... More

I recently visited Rome after studying there two years ago, and my first stop was Fridgidarium! It was by far my favorite gelateria as a student, and I am happy to say it hasn't changed in two years. All of their flavors are incredible, but my favorite is their special Fridgidarium flavor. I'm not quite sure what's in it (chocolate,... More

As an Italian who resides abroad, this is the most delicious ice cream I have EVER had. This place is a MUST for anyone traveling to Rome over the summer. 11/10.

Being a person that loves cold sweets then of course I had to have a lot of gelato while in Italy. I looked on trip advisor to find the best rated gelato in Rome and went out of my way to go try it. It was incredible!! Wish I could have more! I got a medium waffle cone with 3... More

La Gelateria Frigidarium served my favorite gelato in all of Italy. The black chocolate was like eating fudge. And the mixed berry was equally as delicious. This is the place for gelato in Rome.

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.
