You can find amazing gelato in Italy just about anywhere. Some are good, others are excellent, and some others you can't miss at all. For those of you  who have been to Rome and have experienced searching for best gelato summer flavors, you might agree with what’s written here. So here are three best gelaterias and how to find the best gelato in Rome!



Great Tips:

Before you begin to find the best gelato in Rome, it’s best that you learn how to spot what’s fake and genuine gelato. The first tool you need to use is your eyes. You can distinguish easily the fake one by just looking at it. Do you see something that’s like a mountain of bright colors or a paler one that resembles a gelato when mixed with pistachio, milk and sugar? Be careful of products that are result of mixing lots of artificial coloring. You wouldn’t want that!

The next thing you do is a quick peek at the back. Find out if there’s a workshop or a kitchen. It’s good to know that stores with kitchens show that they are actually making gelato and not just ship them from another producer. And lastly, use your sense of taste. Ask for a sample taste of their gelato. If you’re a gelato-lover, you would instantly spot the difference between the real and the fake one. So good luck!
