Gnammi Gnammi...Ice Cream!!!

God's Own Ice Cream

A gelato crawl to some of the best ice cream parlors in Rome, Italy

When is really hot, eat always a good Ice - Cream !!

Although not quite the ice cream mecca Florence is, Rome's gelato is still heavenly.

Any gelateria (ice cream parlor) that advertises produzione propria (homemade) will have a high-quality, tasty stock, but who has the best gelato in town?

Well, that's a question fiercely debated by any and all ice cream lovers.

First, a few ground rules:

  • Don't call it ice cream. First thing to know, to call gelato "ice cream" is insulting to gelato and unfair to ice cream. Gelato is much richer, smoother, and more flavorful than ice cream.

    It is churned, not whipped (as is most traditional American ice cream), so it is far denser, giving it a richer mouth feel. Gelato also is not as laden with sugar and cream, so the subtle tastes of its flavoring comes through much better than in ice cream.
  • Get it at a gelateria: Second thing to know, gelato is something you go out for at a special parlor called a gelateria, and most of it is consumed during the early evening passeggiata stroll—not that gelaterie aren't equally busy during the heat of midday, or late at night...

    I mention this because, unlike in America, gelato is not typically eaten after a meal—or at least you typically don't order it at the restaurant.

    Restaurants often do offer "gelato" on their dessert menus, but this is almost always of the pre-packaged variety. This is fine (I'm partial to a tartufo, a Gobstopper-like sphere of vanilla, chocolate, and fudge dusted with cocoa) but it's not real gelato.

  • Cram in as many flavors as you can think of: Third thing to know, you pay by the size of the coppa (cup) or cono (cone), not by the scoop. That means you can (and are encouraged to) squeeze two or even three flavors into even the smallest cup.

    Italians taught me that even unusual pairs go great together; a personal favorite: cioccolato e limone (chocolate gelato and lemon sorbetto). No, really; try it.

    (Also most Italians order by the cup; the cone is a fun—if messy—American addition to the options, but not too popular).
  • The best gelaterie in Rome

    ★★★ San Crispino - Everyone's favorite "secret gelateria," which is code for "not (yet) crammed with tourists". In point of fact, it's a pretty poorly kept secret, for which we should all be thankful... Full story

    ★★ Caffè Giolitti - Perhaps the most famous gelateria in Rome, going strong since 1900 and still serving the best classic Roman ice cream... Full story

    Tre Scalini - Classy cafe on Piazza Navona serving the classic homemade tartufo, a gelato gobstopper with a cherry in the center... Full story

    The granita cart - On warm, Roman summer nights, the last remaining traditional shave-ice stand in Rome parks on the banks of the Tiber River in Trastevere.... Full story

    The World of Caravaggio

    Rome Art Walking Tour: See Caravaggio’s finest works for free

    There is something about Caravaggio that fascinates people. Even those who would normally prefer to cross a street of hot coals than spend time looking at paintings seem happy to make an exception for this rebel of Counter-Renaissance Art.

    To celebrate Rome’s Caravaggio exhibition that has just opened at the Villa Borghese (and runs through January 24, 2010), it seemed timely to look at this bad boy of the paintbrush and take a tour around Rome to see some of his masterpieces for free!

    So just who was Caravaggio?

    Whilst most artists of the Middle Ages were more soft ruffles than tough scuffles, Caravaggio was not afraid of a fight, a drink, and the odd murder to boot. Commission happy, the taste of luxury did not bring out his lighter side. As well as pushing the Catholic church to the edge with his dark religious paintings, he eventually lost his temper once too often. After killing a young man who beat him in a tennis match in the Campo Dei Fiori, he fled Rome with a price on his head. He finally died in exile, never learning that he had been given a Papal Pardon.

    Where can I see Caravaggio for free?

    Sant’ Agostino Church
    Via Sant’ Agostino

    The Madonna di Loreto (painted in 1605, pictured above) is hung in the first chapel on the left. The church is close to Piazza Navona, and also includes a Raphael fresco. The church is currently under restoration, but don’t be fooled. Under the scaffolding, it is still open so you can see the paintings. For those who are pregnant (or wish to be), touch the statue of the “Madonna del Parto” near the door as you leave for luck.

    San Luigi dei Francesi
    Via Giustiniani

    In the church of San Luigi dei Francesi you get three Caravaggio paintings for free with the Matthew trilogy, including  “The Calling of Saint Matthew”, “St. Matthew and the Angels”, and “The Matrydom of Saint Matthew”. This church is close to the centre, a short walk from the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, and next to the French institute with its wonderful bookshop.

    Santa Maria Del Popolo
    Piazza Del Popolo

    This church is about a 20-minute walk from the historic centre, or you can take the Metro Linea A to Flaminio. Here you can find two paintings, the “Conversion of St. Paul” and “The Crucifixion of St. Peter”, so well worth the journey.

    Please note that many churches are closed between 1 PM – 4 PM, but usually stay open in the evening until around 7 PM.

    And if I want to pay?

    Well if you are at the Santa Maria del Popolo, it is just a short walk up the hill to the Galleria Borghese, and its wonderful park. Here you can see three Caravaggio works, “Sick Bacchus”, “Boy with Bag of Fruit” and “Madonna dei Palafrenieri”. Entrance will cost you €8.50 but you also get to see the amazing Bernini sculpture of “Daphne and Apollo” amongst many other treasures.

    At the moment, you can also access the Caravaggio and Bacon exhibition, on through January 24. Note that for the Galleria Borghese, you need to book in advance as only a limited number are allowed in at any one time (more details here).

    Lastly, you can see the “Gypsy Fortune Teller” at the Capitoline Museums, entrance fee €6.50. Don’t forget that both of these museums are included in the Roma Pass, which is a 3-day pass that gives you free access to two museums, free travel on Rome’s public transport, and discounts to other museums and attractions. The pass costs €23. (read more about the Roma Pass).

    Pyramid of Cestius, Rome

    Pyramid of Cestius history

    The massive monument that is Pyramid of Cestius has a rich history. The pyramid was built on request by Gaius Cestius Epulo; a rich magistrate, praetor and a member of one of the four great religious corporations at Rome. It is believed to have been built around year 15 BC as an extraordinary tomb.

    A Roman pyramid

    One might think it is strange to find an old pyramid in the center of Rome and in a sense – it is. However, after the Roman conquest of Egypt in year 30 BC, Rome was going through a fad for all things Egyptian. Several obelisks were taken from Egypt and placed at Circuses and Forums all around Rome. There was also another pyramid raised in Rome, the pyramid of Romulus, which was demolished in the 16th century.

    Nubian inspiration

    Despite the Egyptian craze and in contrast to popular belief, the Pyramid of Cestius is not based upon the famous pyramids in Giza. If you think about it, the Giza pyramids are all much shallower than this rather steep pyramid.

    The Pyramid of Cestius is instead believed to have been based upon the more pointy Nubian pyramids. One Nubian kingdom was attacked shortly before the construction of this pyramid, which suggests that Gaius Cestius possibly served in that campaign and became inspired. Historians suggest the purpose of the tomb’s pyramid-shape was to serve as a commemoration to the Roman victories in Africa.

    A marble marvel

    The Pyramid of Cestius stands an impressive 37 meters high and almost 30 meters wide. It was built using concrete and brick on a travertine foundation and covered with marble blocks. Today, the pyramid is located in the city but during the time of its construction, it stood in open countryside. During this period, large tombs were not allowed within the city walls.

    Incorporated

    However, Rome grew at a rapid and by the 3rd century, The Pyramid of Cestius had been surrounded by buildings and thus it became a part of the city. The pyramid was even incorporated into the city wall during the construction of the Aurelian Walls towards the end of the 3rd century.

    The inclusion of the pyramid into the wall is the main reason why it is so well preserved. The inclusion made it hard to demolish the Pyramid of Cestius without also destroying the Aurelian Wall.

    Why visit Pyramid of Cestius ?

    The Pyramid of Cestius is a beautiful site. Anyone looking closely at the outer walls of the pyramid should be able to spot inscriptions. There inscriptions dedicate the pyramid to Cestius. They read;

    C · CESTIVS · L · F · POB · EPULO · PR · TR · PL

    VII · VIR · EPOLONVM

    OPVS · APSOLVTVM · EX · TESTAMENTO · DIEBVS ·

    CCXXX

    ARBITRATV

    PONTI · P · F · CLA · MELAE · HEREDIS · ET · POTHI · L

    These inscriptions says;

    “Gaius Cestius Epulo, son of Lucius, praetor, tribune of the plebs, septemvir epulonum “ – with the latter referring to his religious group. “The work was completed, in accordance with the will, in 330 days, by the decision of the heir Pontus Mela, son of Publius of the Claudia and Pothus, freedman”

    There is also an additional inscription on the east side, added in the 17th century. This inscription commemorates the excavation and restoration work carried during the time on orders of Pope Alexander the 7th.

    The burial chamber

    The tomb of Gaius Cestius was located inside the pyramid within a small burial chamber. The chamber was rediscovered in year 1660, during the pope’s restoration. They discovered that the small room was decorated with several detailed wall paintings - so called frescoes.

    The wall painitings were however in bad condition and only parts of them remain today. These paintings are some of the first examples in Rome of the so called Third Style Roman painting.

    A family tomb

    They found no traces of any other contents in the tomb, as it most likely had been plundered in the past. During the excavations, they also found traces of several columns and statues outside the pyramid – remains which today can be found at Musei Capitolini. Inscriptions on the bases of the statues imply that the burial chamber, despite its small size, served as a family tomb for several members of Cestius’s family.

    An appreciated pyramid

    The pyramid has been much admired by architects throughout history and it became the primary model for pyramids built in the West during the 18th and 19th century. Today, it is the only ancient roman pyramid standing in Rome, making it a truly unique sight. It is also one of the very best preserved ancient buildings in Rome.

    Pyramid of Cestius location

    The Pyramid of Cestius is located in Rome, Italy. The cemetery is situated in southern parts of the city, next to the Aurelian Wall and the Pyramid of Cestius. For the exact location of the Pyramid of Cestius, check out the location map to the right.

    To hot ? lets go swimming…

    Rome: Cool off at the city’s new outdoor pool… by the Colosseum

    Summer can be stifling in Rome and come August, most of the locals head for the hills. This year, with more Romans staying put than in the past—and hordes of visitors filling the streets—Rome seems more crowded and even hotter than ever.

    But for those visiting the city in the heat of the summer (or those Romans taking a “stay-cation”), a new city-run pool and entertainment park has made it easy to find a splash of relief from the heat.

    Take a dip, Colosseum-style.

    The swimming pool, run by the Castellum Sport and Culture Association, is located in the heart of the historic center, just behind the Colosseum, in the Parco del Celio (a popular park frequently used as a concert venue). The pool is part of a larger city-run “resort” called All’Ombra del Colosseo, meaning literally “in the shadow of the Colosseum.” It includes the pool, food and drink stands, live music performances, a disco (this is Italy after all), and even a poker table!

    All’Ombra del Colosseo is open for frolicking from June 26 through September 5, when the worst of the summer heat should have passed.

    If you go…

    Soaking away with the iconic monument in full view does come at a price: The pool costs €14 for an all-day pass (starting at 9 AM), and €10 for a half-day runs (starting at 2 PM). Reduced admission is available for children and students, from €7 to €9.

    Cheapo note: Although the price seems steep, remember that the usual price for a beach club pass anywhere in Italy is about €10.

    Getting there

    Entrance on Via di San Gregorio (Parco del Celio).

    For more information, call 06 70 03 17 01 or visit their web site (in Italian only).

    Annie Shapero was born and raised in the cosmopolitan oasis of Columbia, Missouri. A call to the big city brought her to Chicago, where she pursued a degree at DePaul University's theatre conservatory. Four years of "rigorous, professional" training and a minor in Italian language led her to her next destination: Rome, a city of natural born tragedians with a flair for comedy. There she put her dreams of Broadway stardom on hold and took up a wild series of careers (including "marketing strategist" for an edible Egyptian insecticide). Eventually, she found her niche: writing for "WHERE Magazine Rome." When not in Rome, Annie hops about the Mediterranean, indulging in the local gastronomic and dance traditions. Ole´!

    Angels and Demons Top Sites in Rome and the Vatican

    Where to See Places Featured in the Book and Movie Angels and Demons

    By Martha Bakerjian, About.com Guide

    See More About:

    Angels and Demons, the movie based on the book by Dan Brown, is set in Rome and the Vatican. Here are top places you'll see in the movie. You can visit these places yourself next time you're in Rome.

     

    Saint Peter's Square and Basilica

    Vatican City is a tiny sovereign independent state and home to the Pope. Saint Peter's Basilica, one of the world's largest churches, and the huge Saint Peter's Square dominate the Vatican and figure prominently in the movie. Entrance to Saint Peter's Basilica is free but to visit the Vatican excavations, the necropolis beneath Saint Peter's Basilica where part of the movie takes place, you'll have to reserve ahead for a guided visit (see link below).

    Castel Sant' Angelo and Passetto

    Castel Sant' Angelo, built as a tomb for Emperor Hadrian in the second century, was used as a fortress until it became a papal residence in the 14th century. A secret passageway, the Passetto, connects it to the Vatican. In the movie this is a secret ancient Illuminati spot used toward the end of the story. Today Castel Sant' Angelo hosts summer concerts. The Passetto, prison, and private rooms of Clement VII can be visited as of summer, 2010 (information).

    Piazza Navona and the Fountain of Four Rivers

    Piazza Navona is a lively square ringed with high end cafes and Baroque palaces. The stars of the oval-shaped piazza are three lavish Baroque fountains. The central fountain, Fountain of the Rivers or Fontana Dei Fiumi, represents Water on the Path of the Illumination in the story. Created by Bernini in the 1650's the fountain portrays four rivers - the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile, and the Rio de la Plata.

    In-depth Look at Piazza Navona

    Santa Maria del Popolo and Piazza del Popolo

    Santa Maria del Popolo, in Piazza del Popolo, was one of the first Renaissance churches in Rome. In the Chigi Chapel, created by Raphael, are ceiling mosaics and pyramid-like tombs as well as statues by Bernini. The Chigi Chapel represents Earth on the Path of Illumination in the movie and book.

    Santa Maria della Vittoria

    Santa Maria della Vittoria is a Baroque church on Via XX Settembre. The church holds the famous Ecstasy of Saint Teresa by Bernini that represents Fire on the Path of Illumination.

     

    The Pantheon

    Rome's Pantheon, the ancient temple of all the gods, was built between AD 118-125 by Emperor Hadrian. Its dome was the largest dome ever until Brunelleschi's dome at the Florence Cathedral was built in 1420-36. In the 7th century it was made into a church by early Christians but it's still the best preserved building of ancient Rome. Today is surrounded by a pleasant and lively piazza, a nice place to sit in the evening and enjoy a drink. Admission to the Pantheon is free.

    Sistine Chapel

    The Sistine Chapel, built from 1473-1481, is both the Pope's private chapel and the venue for the election of the new pope by the cardinals. Michelangelo painted the famous ceiling frescoes, with the central scenes depicting creation and the story of Noah. He also decorated the altar wall with the Last Judgment and there are works by several other famous artists. The chapel can be visited with the Vatican Museums. To enjoy the Sistine Chapel without the crowds, consider this Sistine Chapel Private After-Hours Visit, offered by Select Italy.

    Caserta Royal Palace

    Caserta Royal Palace was the set for filming many of the Angels and Demons scenes that take place in Vatican City, since filming in Vatican City was forbidden. Caserta Royal Palace or Reggia di Caserta, northeast of Naples, is an extravagant 18th century Bourbon palace that's often used as a movie set. You might recognize the palace from other movies including Star Wars Episode I and II and Mission Impossible III where it substituted for Vatican City.

    Time Out in a Old historical Caffè

    Bar della Pace

    Rome's Antico Caffè della Pace (which is known to all and sundry as Bar della Pace) is eternally à la mode. In cooler months the antiques and flower-filled rooms emit a sense of warmth, and the proximity of the tables allows for cosying up to your neighbours. Outdoors, it continues to be a great, albeit pricey, place from which to survey passers-by. Of a summer evening pick a pavement table beneath this establishment's trademark façade clad in swaying ivy and watch the action on the street.
