Palazzo del Freddo di Giovanni Fassi

Gelato in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

A vast temple to gelato, decked out with plenty of marble-topped table seating and decorated with antique gelato-making machinery, Fassi is a classic Rome experience. Funky flavours include riso (rice) and nocciola (hazelnut), and its tramezzini (ice-cream wafer 'sandwiches') and granita – served with dollops of cream – both deserve special mention.
