A historic destination in Rome, Fassi Gelateria has been serving gelato, cakes and semifreddi (Italian frozen dessert) to kings and ordinary citizens for five generations since 1880. Close to Stazione Termini in the Esquilino neighbourhood, the shop is large, accommodating the large crowds that stop by daily. Enjoy your gelato on a cone or give it a twist and ask the staff to fill a brioche Sicily-style or a "sandwich" with your favourite flavours. For a more gluttonous experience, savour their sanpietrini, semi-frozen desserts covered with chocolate in the shape of the typical cobbles that make up the city streets.
Must-try flavours: Zuppa Inglese (English soup), currant, pistachio, eggnog.
