the fantastic looking pastries

Hot chocolate with whipped cream (take away – way cheaper!) EUR3.80

my medium cup

Gelateria La Carraia

a medium cup to share, just before dinner

A place seems to be mostly patronised by locals and passing by toursists (like us), not exactly in prime touristic area, which is good. Very homemade feel to the taste, of course that means delicious flavours and fantastic texture.

This time round, we didn’t get to visit the famous Vivoli gelato shop, the same in Rome which we didn’t get to try those top gelato names listed on travel pages.

I am sure there will be next time.
