Dear customer thank you so much for having visited our ice cream shop, and for the wonderful review.

It is on Via Couvour and up just a block or two from the Forum. Well worth the walk. You will pass a couple of other gelato places until you find this one. Loved their gelato and they have outdoor seating with no charge.

Dear customer thank you very much for your visit and for excellent opinion.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
