And I mean honestly, only in Roma could your professor convince your university to give you money to eat gelato.
It's called "an immersive experience".
So this past weekend I found myself taking the bus down to the bottom of the hill and purchasing some delicous gelato.
Fatamorgana. And it was delicious. I really wish that I had discovered this place earlier - they have so many cool flavors!! It's not my absolute favorite...but I think it's my second.
The two flavors I tried: Kentucky (I mean, come on, I had to) which was described as chocolate and tobacco....Have to say, didn't taste any tobacco. It just tasted...earthier. Bacio - I always have bacio. It's my comparison flavor. This one had a legit hazelnut in it.
Upside: Great choices, all natural ingredients!
Downside: Off the beaten track. As in on a side street that gets no pedestrian traffic. I really hope this place makes it!!!
The second place was Gelarmony. This one, though equally good, didn't have the variety of flavors I was hoping for. However, it was much easier to find. You get off the bus and - Voila! It's there in front of you! I do have to say though, if you like Dreamscicle, try the Mandarin orange flavor. It distinctly reminded me of Dreamscicles.
After this I needed to work off the calories and sugar...so I walked down along the Tiber...
|Carousels, Santa, balloons, games...|
Across to Piazza Navona and the Christmas market...
|Jacopo and Natalie|
To the Pantheon, and on down to Trastevere where there was a chocolate festival....Nbd.
I'm going to miss Rome. A lot.
