Gelato Tour of Rome

Duration: 3 hours

It’s impossible to think of Italy without gelato springing to mind! But with so many “gelaterie” (ice-cream shops) to choose from, how do you know where to find the best? With your private gelato tour of Rome, you will learn not only how to discern the good gelato from the bad, but you’ll gain insight into what makes this frozen treat so beloved. Start at the source! We will visit a renowned gelato artisan for a gelato-making demonstration. We will learn the technique and the art of gelato making, from texture to flavor to temperature. After sampling some of the creations, we will visit a selection of artisanal gelato makers. Each gelateria is known for certain flavors, so we’ll taste a few signature flavors at each and along the way, we’ll discuss the history of gelato, current gelato trends in Rome and Italy, and the differences in making gelato, sorbet and granita.
