In Rome, whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall, it’s never out of season to have a gelato. You can choose from more common fruit flavors to unique flavors such as nutella, tiramisu, nocciola, gianduia. Learn two useful words when in a gelateria (ice cream shop) : coppa (cup) or cono (cone). Some gelaterias offer toppings free of charge so take advantage of that. You can also try gelato the Sicilian way by having your choice of flavors in a bread bun! Other things to try when in a gelateria are the granitas, frullati (milkshake), macedonia (fruit salad), crepes. Another thing you must know is that some gelaterias are also pasticcerias (sweets shop/bakery) so save some space for these delightful sweets! Whenever you want to have a gelato, day or night, before or after a meal, as a snack or even as a meal, don’t pass up the opportunity to indulge in this sweet treat. You won’t have a problem finding an ice cream shop because there are just about in any corner. Just a tip, stay away from gelaterias displaying extra colorful flavors and extra full ice cream containers: it is a clear signal that the gelato is not natural.
