great little place, very close to the vatican. The fruity ice cream was great, if you go there I recommend to choose these over the chocolatey ones

The nicest little place very close to Vatican city. My friend and I tried cannolli and it tasted so good. The next day we had to come back in order to enjoy cannolli one more time. Furthermore, ice cream tastes delicious as well. I definitely...recommend this place.More

My friends and I came from the US and stumbled upon this place, SO GOOD!! Everything is safe for peanut eaters and it’s all delicious. I would recommend trying the pistacchio pastry or the Tartufo, they were amazing! Super cute and has the nicest employees.

This was our 2nd trip to Rome (we discovered Hedera during our 1st trip last year), and we absolutely wouldn’t miss an opportunity to enjoy Hedera’s gelato! From the owner and employees and their friendly, welcoming smiles to the quaint, adorable atmosphere - your experience...will be amazing! We visited every night of our trip and can’t wait to go back!!More

Good gelato on a very nice street near the Vatican. Stop in if you are near, but don't make a pilgrimage.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which
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
