Some say that ice cream from Giolitti is the best ice cream in the world. This small ice cream shop in Rome has been selling ice cream since the beginning of the twentieth century, making it the oldest ice cream shop in Italy.
Nowadays, you can also order a coffee or pastry in here, however, ice cream still remains the greatest attraction. It is made according to secret recipes, and you can choose to get a taste of many various flavours, including rice or marsala mustard.
The shop, named after its owners, was established in 1890 by Mr and Mrs Giolitti. The family has been able to keep it until today and, thanks to its popularity, even expanded their business, opening one more shop at the Casina Dei Tre Laghi.
Giolitti Ice Cream's fame has a negative side though, you can expect queues here at all times. However, the line still moves fairly quickly, so you don't need to worry about waiting too long.
