When in Rome...

We have been nurturing our love affair with Rome this weekend. It is a great time to visit. The temperature is a comfortable high twenties, the locals are still on holiday and the summer tourists are backing off.

And what else is there to do on a Sunday in Rome but enjoy a magnificent Gelato! Here are our favourite Gelato parlours downtown...

Il Gelato Di San Crispino on Piazza Della Maddalena is around the corner from Via Dell Orso where local crafts people make and sell their wares on a sunday only. Indulge in a giant gelato, take a stroll and buy something that has just been made.

The most popular parlour is Della Parma, Gelato di Roma. Always packed and with the added bonus of being able to lick the face of the Pope!

Moving west towards the banks of the Tiber hidden down Via di Monto Brianzo is 71degrees. We love this not only for the great icecream but because it is next door to a fantastic design boutique, Fortinna.

If you need a place to chill with your icecream and fancy some posh cakes as well, then go to La Meridiana on the corner of Piazza des Lorenzo in Lucina. A bright big piazza, ideal for watching the Roma catwalk pass on by. The head around the corner to the north to find Borsalino to pick up that Fidora you have always wanted. The best headware in Rome - Italy - the World!
