What people say

"Frigidarium is a famous gelateria located in the historic center of Rome. The gelateria is known for its high-quality gelato. Frigidarium offers a wide variety of gelato flavors, from classic flavors like chocolate and vanilla to more unusual flavors like licorice, ginger, and cinnamon. The gelateria is also known for its signature flavor, "Frigidarium", which is a creamy and refreshing blend of chocolate, hazelnut, and cream. One of the unique features of Frigidarium is its use of liquid nitrogen in the gelato-making process. Liquid nitrogen is added to the gelato mixture as it is being frozen, which creates a smoother and creamier texture. Frigidarium is also known for its generous portions and affordable prices. The gelateria has a cozy and inviting atmosphere, with a small seating area where customers can enjoy their gelato while watching the bustling streets of Rome."
"Frigidarium is a popular gelato shop located in the heart of Rome's Parione rione, at Via del Governo Vecchio 112 . They are known for their delicious homemade gelato, with flavors that range from the classics like pistachio and chocolate to more unique offerings like the "frigidarium flavor." Reviewers rave about the quality of the gelato, generous portions, and reasonable prices. While there's no seating inside the shop, there are benches and stools along the cobblestone street where you can enjoy your gelato."
"Just a short walk from Piazza Navona you will discover this artisinal ice cream shop. Step inside to savor exceptional gelato!"

Fascinating places in Rome - a little bit of this, a little bit of that, mixing classics with some unpopular, hidden gems! Where to eat/drink (including a bunch of beautiful rooftops), where to shop (outlets, bespoke & made in Italy - brands you rarely find outside this country) and what to visit around (gorgeous sights included, so be sure to check them out and take lots of pictures). Highlights: 🛵 Vespa - is an Italian luxury brand of scooters and mopeds manufactured by Piaggio. The name means wasp in Italian. An Italian icon since 1946. You’ll see many of these all over the city. 🍕 Roman style Pizza - we encounter "pizza al taglio," which means "by the cut". The scizzas, which are a type of scissors, are used to cut this pizza into square-shaped slices. This helps to maintain the structure of both the toppings and the crust. There is also “pizza bassa”, with a thin base. Roman pizza is practically the opposite to Neapolitan pizza: it is crispy and they are not afraid of toppings. A classic on all menus in Rome is the Capricciosa: topped with ham, mushrooms, olives, artichoke, an egg and tomato. Oil is added to the dough and there is much less water than the Naples version. 🥯 The maritozzo - is a classic sweet pastry, traditionally packed full of whipped cream, which has satisfied Romans for centuries. The dough-based bun is typically eaten in Rome for breakfast but can also be eaten as a hefty snack, or dessert, throughout the day. ☕️ Ristretto - is Italian for "short shots", and that's exactly what this shot of espresso brings to the table. Its main difference is that it takes a shorter extraction time, and uses less water therefore the flavor is rich and bold, and very intense. 🍧 La Grattachecca Romana - a favourite icy drink with fruity flavor; for the Romans, the grattachecca is sacred - strictly prepared by hand in the historical kiosks of the Rioni Trastevere, Testaccio and Prati, in the lively Ponte Milvio area and Trieste and Trionfale districts. Grattachecca derives, in fact, from the action with which the “ghiacciata" (ice) is produced: with a special tool, the ice is scraped off a block, called the "checca" in Roman dialect. 🛍️ When it comes to shopping, Rome can be quite the haven for designer brands, but there is no other fashion house more Roman than Valentino Garavani. The brand’s design (its famous studs) has its origins in the Renaissance architecture of Rome - the “bugnato” technique of the ancient Roman buildings. The largest Valentino store (in the world) lies here, in Rome, on the famous Piazza di Spagna site.
