When in Rome, Italy you can’t leave without trying gelato. And while there are shops on almost every corner, you don’t want to walk into the first one that catches your eye. Not all gelato is created equally. Sure, most are pretty good, but there are a few that are amazing. If you want to enjoy the best gelato the capital of Italy has to offer, check out these three shops.

Gelateria La Romana

What sets this shop apart from the other many gelato shops is its attention to ingredients. The sorbets contain nearly 50 percent fruit and the crema flavors are comprised of organic eggs, milk, and cream. The gelato is whisked downstairs from the laboratory, freshly churned, and then poured into the tubs.

Gelateria della Palma

While this Gelateria della Palma is always crowded, it’s definitely worth the wait. The ice cream parlor has a sweeping counter and sidewalk terrace, but the real selling point is the over 150 types of gelato. The ice cream is 100% handmade and there are soya, milk-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free options.


Fiordiluna focues on the classics like chocolate, crema, lemon, and coffee and they use top-notch ingredients from local, producers. There are also fun twists like the popular duetto, which is a mix of pistachio and hazelnut.
