    Despite being a tourist trap, this is truly some of the best gelato in Rome. Trust me... I tired almost all of them. I usually prefer the gelato that is served covered up, but the flavors here are incredible. Make sure you step up to the front and yell your order or you could be there all day.

    How can one of Rome's best gelaterie be recommended for budget travelers? Because one of Rome's most decadent pleasures is also one of its most affordable, with prices for cones ranging from €2 up.

    Gelato, pastries, and more gelato! It's near the Parlamento, so the surrounding streets may be blocked off at times; you should fearlessly walk around the blockades because it's worth it. Try the Opera, Zabaione, Cioccolata Bianca, and Gnuttela.

    It's not easy to find but once you do, be prepared to experience the best gelato experience in Rome.

    You have to pay first at the cashier near the door, then battle the crowds (there will be a crowd) and work yourself up to one of the guys behind the counter. Call out your flavors, and if you're lucky they will have whipped cream. Don't pass this up.

    This place was recommended to us by our tour manager, so we were a bit skeptical. Were we ever wrong.

    We could have saved a few Euro getting a scoop on a cone at the counter, but it had already been a long day of walking so we took a seat and ordered off the menu. I got some gelato, where as the other girls got a cappuccino, tiramisu and some other dessert I can't remember. The pistachio gelato was SO GOOD. Nothing you've ever tasted. Even my friend that doesn't like pistachio ice cream was amazed at how much she loved it. It actually tasted like pistachios, very nutty.

    Pro tip - if you sit in the sitting area, the prices are higher, but the portions are also bigger and there is free wifi available to you while you are "dining". Also, there is a bathroom in the back. There is usually a line since there are only two for both men and women.

    Best gelato in Rome! I don't even like pistachio normally as a flavor because in the States, it's very artificial, however at Giolitti, the pistachio flavor is nutty and fantastic. Get it and you won't be disappointed. All the flavors are great here. I also got the tiramisu which was delicious. If you must have gelato, try it here. Apparently it's the most famous gelato place in Rome. The Obama girls visited and learned how to make gelato here.

    Sit-down service costs extra and they offer free wifi to paying customers. Take-away cones are about 2-3 euro and sit down gelato is 7 euro. This place is also near the Pantheon.

    Rome has many excellent gelaterias. The Giolitti gelateria is among those frequently recommended as amongst the best. When Michelle Obama was in Rome she came her with her daughters. The most difficult decision is making a choice amongst the many flavours.

    Giolitti is a must visit when in Rome. They have the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted and their fresh squeezed juices are phenomenal.

    Giolitti is one of the most famous gelato places in Rome. The decor inside is old world with wooden floors and cabinets and men dressed in black-and-white server attire. The gelatos taste very good and is definitely worth the trip.
