Another common favorite among Rome street food, gelato dates all the way back to the 16th century. While the history of this sweet, creamy delight is widely debated, the story behind such a beloved dessert can only be a colorful one! One of my personal favorites when it comes to the story of gelato’s creation include Bernardo Buontalenti, a native Florentine, who delighted a royal court with this truly revolutionary sugary invention. As for where to eat in Rome for the best gelato; the city is home to thousands of gelaterias drawing locals and tourists in with aesthetically pleasing rows of colorful gelato and endless flavor combinations. For a taste of Rome’s very best frozen treats be sure to visit a gelateria that uses all-natural ingredients like Fior di Luna (via della Lungaretta, 96) and don’t forget to take that iconic snap of your gelato with the antique alleys of Rome in the background.
