Experience Gelato in Italy

Curious about the origin of gelato? Alexander the Great collected snow so that he could eat it with fruit and honey! This custom was later passed on to the ancient Greeks and the Romans.

Of course, gelato today is much more elaborate than it’s snow-with-fruit ancestor! Also, home-made gelato is a lot healthier and lower in calories with respect to factory made ice-cream. Gelato is made with fresh milk, eggs and fruit or nut paste or cocoa. Or in the case of one of our personal favorites gelato al caffè, it’s made with freshly brewed coffee!
