What tourists love so much about gelato when they come to Italy is how good and fresh it takes. That's because unlike American ice cream, gelato is made with fresh fruits and other ingredients and most often without any added preservatives. When it comes to finding good gelato, you don't have to look very far. Luckily for visitors, Rome has a growing surplus of spots featuring this mouth-watering, tasty treat.
Locals themselves can't get enough of the city's excellent options, and you'll often find them, along with eager tourists, at popular places like Giolitti or San Crispino, both national landmarks when running in gelato circles. The great thing about gelato is that it doesn't make you feel heavy or weigh you down after eating it. That's because it's not as hyper-caloric as traditional American ice cream is.
Once you try some really good gelato, you'll realize it makes a great afternoon snack or even an after-dinner treat. It doesn't have the summer time, in order for you to enjoy some of this delicious Roman gelato. The delightful snack is also just as good in the winter. So what are you waiting for?
