This ice cream shop does not look spectaculair from outside but Vera Gelateria offers over 100 flavours. Every day in offer some different favours. My favorite flavours are: fennel with anise, tunesia (honey with date), amarena and pistachio. Very friendly staff and delicious ice cream.

This gelato shop is located very close to Locarno train station. They have so many flavours of gelato. I had crepe with banana & strawberry gelato which was good. The staffs are very friendly. One of them speaks English very well. Credit cards are accepted.
