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. 🙂
