The first gelaterias, aka ice-cream houses, emerged in Rome back in the 1900s. Since then, ice-cream makers have tried their best to preserve the ancient cooking methods so that future generations could enjoy this heavenly, cool dessert in its original perfection. There are a plenty of gelaterias all across the city. You can choose among a plethora of flavours and colours, and the taste is like no other ice-cream in the world... As soon as you try one, you'll realise it's impossible not to like it. Gelaterias typically open in April and operate until September.
