Palazzo del Freddo Giovanni Fassi

I had somehow acquired the addresses of a couple of gelaterias in Rome. We were near Termini, so going to the nearest one seemed like the right thing to do.

Palazzo del Freddo Giovanni Fassi
Via Principe Eugenio, 65/67/A (near Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II)
00185 Rome, Italy
tel: +39.06.446.4740
fax: +39.06.446.4777
Tu-F 1200-2430
Sa 1200-0130
Su 1000-1230
(last visit November 2003)
Metro: Vittorio Emanuele (Line A)

another location at
Via Vespasiano, 56 a/b/c (near the Vatican)
00192 Rome, Italy

Since 1880, this factory has been churning out great gelato in a host of flavors. It's a big place, by Italian standards, and as it's in an iffy neighborhood (though near Rome's Chinatown, apparently), you won't find the huge lines of tourists gelaterias in more popular areas tend to attract. The gelato, as I said, is excellent. Cones and cups come in a variety of sizes from € 1.30 to 2.60. I can't remember which flavors we had when we were last there, but at these prices, you can afford try a lot of them.
