Those on a Europe vacation know that when in Rome, you should do as the Romans do. Luckily, what Romans do is eat some pretty awesome gelato.
Located in the heart of the historic city center, the popular San Crispino Gelateria is considered one of the best gelato shops in Rome. Gelato purists, San Crispino doesn’t bother with fancy toppings and they definitely don’t serve it on cones. But as the lines out the door prove, this is a-ok with the Romans.
In addition to being located next to the Trevi Fountain and right off via Veneto, one of the most affluent shop-filled streets in the world, San Crispino is walking distance to some fantastic Rome hotels, including the Residenza Dominziano, the Canova Tadolini Residenza and the Boutique Hotel Trevi. In addition to being close to popular tourist sites, all three Rome hotels offer the characteristic Italian elegance and ambiance.
