Rome : Della Palma Gelato

After our great dinner at Pizzeria da Baffetto on Saturday night, we were angling to try some amazing Italian gelato and the kids hadn't stopped raving about Della Palma which they'd discovered the night before.  On our walk through Piazza Navona we stopped at Grom where some of our group ordered gelato in flavours like salted caramel and Granny Smith apple.  It all looked great, but I was holding out for Della Palma - and I wasn't disappointed.

The guys at Della Palma claim to have over 100 flavours of gelato winding around the long wriggly counter in their store, and it took me a while to decide what I wanted.  You have to pay at another counter first, and get your receipt, then you take that to the gelato scoopers who change it for frozen goodness.

After a few investigatory trips along the counter, I decided on Bounty (yes, Bounty gelato!) and Honey Sesame Seed.  Well, I wasn't disappointed, they were outrageously good, and it was a treat to walk back through Rome at night, scooping up little spoons of yum as we wandered along.
