While meandering back towards my hotel, I came across this geletaria. The number of people in the area gave the place away. I had an excellent small pictashio cone which was a steal at two Euro.

in the walking distance from coloseum (you can actually see it from here) lies this Amazing Gelateria. Around 40 kinds of different ice cream. My wife tried ice cream which we later found out to be Vegan, and it was just as good as regular!...More

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
