Description: The first Old Bridge gelateria was born in Rome 25 years ago in viale dei Bastioni di Michelangelo, 5 in the vicinity of Vatican city. Gianni and Antonello are the ice cream makers who, together with their co-operators produce every day the famous ice-cream appreciated by thousands of people all over the world. If you find yourself in Rome, around St Peter’s area, you will notice a long queue of people standing outside Old Bridge gelateria. During the period from March to September especially, Old Bridge gelateria is visited daily by thousands of people who in many cases have to wait in the queue for up to one hour before tasting our finest ice-creams. The authenticity of our recipes and ingredients together with our passion for ice-cream make Old Bridge ice-creams unique, and our gelateria an institution not to be missed.

yes! it's not a bad idea at all visiting vatican meanwhile leaking the best icecream ever(i'm not exagerating).i can judge myself an expert,and at the old bridge you can eat icecream made only with fresh fruit and no chimical ingrediens ,i can say that, because the taste is really good and i go there any time i have the chanse (i'm living in rome).the only boring point is that there is always a long line expecially during summertime, but i can suggest this place expecially for tourist because is located just next the vatican.

A great find near the Vatican! The blueberry was incredible and a must while visiting. Though they only let you taste one flavor, all the flavors we ordered were wonderful!!

I come here every time I'm back in Rome. It's right next to the Vatican in Piazza Risorgimento, easy to get to, and well worth it if your hotel isn't close. Huge portions, amazing gelato, you can't really ask for much more. Except for panna, which you will of course be offered. Definitely stop here for a mid-afternoon break.
