Gelato is never a bad idea.
How would you like to visit a selection of artigianale gelato makers, and taste in each a few signature flavors?
On our walking gelato jaunt, food lovers are guided by local food experts who focus on showcasing only small, family-run gelaterias, and who love creating friendly connections between travelers and locals.
Along the way, leisurely strolling between gelaterias, we discuss the history of gelato, current trends in Rome and abroad, and note the differences between gelato, sorbet and granita, and how these differ from ice cream.
During our visit of Rome’s best family-run and artisan gelaterie–where gelato is mostly still homemade, using the freshest ingredients–food lovers come away with tools to notice the differences between commercial and proper gelato, in order to consume only quality products.

We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!Poland221USA
