While traveling through Asia this past winter, we frequently found ourselves talking about the different foods we couldn't wait to eat in Italy. Handmade pasta, perfectly crispy thin-crust pizza, mountains of local cheese, garden fresh tomatoes... you get the picture. One thing we strangely didn't mention though, is gelato. Although we both love ice cream, we just didn't think gelato would be a priority on our food tour of Italy. That all changed the second we bought our first cone in Rome. We were hooked. We ate at least 1 cone or cup of gelato every single day for our entire two months in Italy. We probably consumed close to 250 scoops between the two of us. All this is to say, we now consider ourselves pretty much experts on the gelateria options in Italy. Here are our 10 favorites...
