    There’s an excellent little gelato place right by the Pantheon — makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

    Is it DelPalma? The one with like a billion flavors? I keep telling my friend that’s were it is but she says it’s by the Trevi fountain! Am I right after all?

    I hope you stopped in Santa Maria Sopra Minerva (right behind the elephant obelisk) and said hello to Saint Catherine of Siena and Fra Angelico. Both are buried there. It is one of the most spectacularly beautiful gothic cathedrals in Rome with a deep blue ceiling (you’d never know if from the exterior, however).

    San Crispino is supposed to be the best gelato in Rome. I think it is near the Trevi. Unfortunately, I didn’t find this out until AFTER our trip.

    I had great gelato in many different places, but my favorite was Old Bridge just off the big piazza near the Vatican museums entrance. We were tipped off to Old Bridge by a seminarian friend who was studying in Rome (he also studied gelato intently). The cones were HUGE and it was the only place I could find pignoli nut gelato, my fave.

    Well, anyway, even if you don’t manage to do all the very excellent things I did on my trip to the Eternal City (did you know that’s what they call Rome…The Eternal City?), at least have the courtesy to acknowledge that my trip was SO much cooler than yours, or at least that I know SO much more about Rome than you and appreciate it SO much better than you and therefore deserve SO much more to be there right now than you do, G*DDAMMIT!!!

    If you want some gelato, go to the McDonalds by the airport. They have good softserve there for a good value. It has the same great chemical after taste that you get in the states. If you eat the Roman gelato, sure it will be fantastic unlike that which you have ever had before, but then you’ll wake up from your little Roman holiday back in La Mesa. Then what are you going to do? Where you gonna get your fix? Oh yeah, I forgot, if you’re gonna drink wine, stick to the Pinot Grigio, and try to avoid wines you never heard of before. The Italians are sneaky that way, they keep all the good stuff for themselves and export the crap.

    McDonald’s McGelato – I’m lovin’ it.
    Duly acknowledged. But we did get to Santa Maria Sopra Minvera on Church Drunk day (as in, drunk on churches…)
    Thanks all for the gelato counsel.

    Hey you can get a box of McGrigio at that McDonalds too. It will help your re-assimilation back into the Gruelag.
