Don’t look any further for the best gelato in Rome! Homemade gelato made fresh daily. Patrizio makes small batches to ensure the freshest gelato. Fior di latte is a must!! Great stop nearby St. Peter’s Basilica!! Awesome ending after having dinner at Ristorante Venerina

The ice creams are not good at all, the owner can’t be more rude. It’s a shame . A really cool street with nice places and nice people and this was by far the worst place we were in Rome ...

acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
