Loads of choice and really good value as you get such a lot for your money. Would highly recommend visiting as is definitely worth it. The only thing we would suggest is maybe having a board with flavours outside to help you make up your mind as so much choice :-)

Flavors that set the bar, better quality. Lines can form, so if you see a short line, mark this place off your bucket list upfront. Don't leave Rome without it.

Stopped here after it was recommended by one of my friends who studied in Rome for a few months. It didn't disappoint! Went here in April, weather was warm (About 76 degrees F) so gelato was necessary! Bit of a queue but it went fast. Lots of options for flavours and sizes for cones and dishes. Would recommend to anyone looking for good gelato near the Vatican City.

While this gelateria may seem like a touristy spot, it is actually very good gelato! I know to look for gelato that is not very decorative, and spends more time on the quality of the dessert than the presentation, and Old Bridge definitely does. It looks ordinary, but tastes extraordinary. And a plus, it is right next to St. Peter's, so definitely grab a scoop before standing in the long hot line at Vatican City!

Can sometimes require a wait, but it is absolutely worth it. All the usual flavours plus some stunners - black cherry, the sorbet-like lemon and my favourite, the ricotta cheese pistachio. Free whipped cream on top if you'd like. Lovely.
