You can’t buy happiness but you can buy ice cream. And that’s kind of the same thing.

Gelato is part of the everyday life in Italy. Enjoy an ice cream while walking through the streets of beautiful Rome.

When I moved to Rome, I tried so many ice cream in so many places. I wanted to find ice cream with nutella and other different flavors but I wasn’t very lucky because I tasted all horrible ones. 🙂

Those years, I wasn’t using internet to search  places to eat. I wanted to find personally but I couldn’t be succesful. When my mother visited me, she discovered really amazing ice cream parlours in Rome.

After six years living in Rome, I discovered delicious ice creams with my mother. There are many ice creams parlors opened and closed. I would like to share currently active ice cream parlours.
