Visited after St. Peter's square and needed refuelling! Great value and amazing ice cream. Serve coffee and biscuits too. But no milk in the coffee! Still didn't detract from a great visit

It´s really awesome! They had some veggie flavours, which I think was great because my child can't have milk. Pistachio is simply marvellous!

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
