I have no idea how this fellow gets his particular gelato to be so intensely flavorful. His pricing is the same as everywhere else, but after you try his stuff you will go nowhere else!

This is my favourite gelato. The chocolate is rich and out of this world. Lemon and banana/kiwi is heaven. A must try in Vernazza

Location: Vernaza, in the Cinque Terre.

Food: Strictly gelato and perfect for a pit stop, post trek. I tried the fragola (strawberry) and ambrogio (nuts, cream, chocolate). Both were delicious and refreshing. They offered a variety of flavours to suit pretty much anyone.

The place: It's tiny so the line up backs out into the street. This isn't a sit down place.

Service: Good. There's only one fellow serving and he's pretty efficient.

Price point: a bit more expensive than what you'd pay in Rome - about 1.50€ per scoop.

Check these guys out after your hike - their gelato is a tasty and refreshing way to cool you right down.

The cinnamon and chocolate were both very good and the coffee flavour was wonderful - I would definitely recommend you try them..
