Gelato in Rome - The Classics {Palazzo del Freddo Giovanni Fassi}


gelato in Rome

There is some really delicious, carefully crafted, meticulously sourced gelato in Rome. 

But sometimes it's more about the place. And the experience, than anything else.

Palazzo del Freddo Giovanni Fassi (or Fassi for short)is just this kind of place.

It may not be the very best gelato you will have in Rome, but it is an authentic Roman experience.


Don't be put off by the crowds and seeming chaos. Fassi is aircraft hanger sized and the team scoops with efficiency. There are tables and benches and a small outside courtyard to sit.

They have something called a gelato tramazzini - really - what more could I say.

You can read about the family history with gelato in the in-house museum which is filled with gelato making artifacts.
