Every Roman has a favorite gelateria, but Palazzo del Freddo (literally, Palace of Cold) is one joint that everybody can agree on when it comes to eating prime gelato.
Giovanni Fassi’s Palazzo del Freddo is the oldest and largest ice-cream vendor in Italy. Giovanni’s father, Giacomo, started the family business way back in 1880. After generations of delicious desserts, the surname Fassi will forever be synonymous with gelato in Rome.
Aside from the usual assortment of ice cream, Palazzo del Freddo also serves some original desserts that are equally delicious.
