Italy is famous for quite a number of edible things, namely pasta, pizza, and gelato above others. Whilst in Rome I saw loads of pizza and pasta on sale in all the restaurants and take-aways. However, and maybe it was because I wasn’t looking for them I didn’t see so many gelato sellers. I did notice a few people who were sampling the world renowned gelato, or ice cream to the UK readers!
This lady was thoroughly enjoying hers outside the Colosseum.
I smiled when I saw this little girl sharing her fathers’ cone. That’s what little girls should do, help their fathers from putting on too much weight.
Heading from the Colosseum you head along Via dei Fori Imperiali. This is where I saw this lady with the chocolate sauce running down the gelato. She was well prepared with a tissue. She wouldn’t want it dripping over her lovely dress.
We took a walk over the river to the Isola Tiberina, an island in the middle of the River Tiber. As soon as I crossed the bridge I saw this couple eating their cones. They seemed so chilled standing in the shade. I couldn’t help but notice how the woman’s eyes were so piercing.
A little wander and I saw these two girls coming away from the cafe that was selling the gelato.
I kept my eye on the girl with the tub as she licked up some that had gone over the side as she passed me.
She then made her way towards the wall in the shade and started using her spoon.
Heading over to the Piazza Navona, which we visited a couple of times, I noticed this man who seemed a bit surreptitious eating his tub of gelato on the bench amongst the crowd.
Then I noticed what looked like a Mother and Son enjoying their gelato together whilst sitting on the edge of the Fountain of the Four Rivers. You can see that they also noticed me, but it didn’t stop them enjoying their gelato.
I would have liked to try a genuine Italian Gelato, but Baz wouldn’t let me, he kept moving us on.
