On our way to the Trevi Fountain we saw this ice cream shop and decided to experience it. It had the most amazing flavors and good service. We went back again after changing a number of public transport buses to have it one more time before leaving Rome. Recommended to everyone!

This gelateria is so amazing and tasty! It is a very good place to go as it is not too close to any attractions but it is in a not-too-busy alleyway and hard to miss. It is a wonderfully delicious destination!

This place has the best gelato and exotic natural flavors. It is located near Trevi fountain and the owner is a very friendly person who even suggested us which two flavors go together and what to eat first of the two. It's a busy place, it has to be. Don't miss tasting these heavenly gelato.

Near by Fontana di Trevi, this is an excellent gelateria. The gelati varieties are perfect and especially the "take me" and "love me" tastes, nuttella and ferrero rocher, respectively. The owner was cool and quite helpful explaining and recommending tastes. Worth visiting and trying Valentino's ice cream.

This was the best gelato period! In my 4 days in Rome the kids and I at least went there 3 times. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Once I witnessed him calming a lost young traveler ... explaining the way to her hostel in detail 😃

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
