Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture


Gelato is Italy’s version of ice cream. When we visited, we found one gelato shop on just about every block.

Gelato comes in a wide variety of natural flavors that are arranged by shop owners in interesting, beautiful displays.

There is less butterfat in gelato than our ice cream, and it is also not frozen as solid so the full flavor can be enjoyed as the gelato melts in your mouth.

The air infused into our ice cream doubles the quantity but may impact the quality. Gelato is richer and creamier.

As a major part of their culture and economy, I did my best to stop at as many gelato shops as I could. 🙂

  1. Yummmm, gelato is the best. A family in our hometown started a homemade gelato shop and our son worked there when he was in high school years ago. They’ve since expanded into our nearby city so we don’t get to savor it as often as we once did. Just wanted to pop by your blog and thank you for the likes you’ve given my blog. Glad I finally found the time to visit yours!


  2. My husband and I love gelato!! What a great place to meet other bloggers for a meet up!

    I most certainly would have done the same! 🙂


  4. Oh there’s nothing like the taste of Italian gelato…ice-cream is a pale imitation!

    I hope to get a chance to do some original research in the field soon!

    We’ve yet to find anything here that comes close to the heavenly gelato to be had in Italy!

    It sounds wonderful! I can’t imagine being there and going from shop to shop sampling — how fun!
