 Gelato

A trip to Italy can never be complete without a taste of their heavenly gelato. A spoonful of this creamy dessert offers a burst of rich flavours. The best part? You can enjoy this without any guilt! Besides, gelato is substantially lower in fat content than a regular cup of ice cream; therefore, a nice tub or a few scoops of this mouthwatering dessert won’t mess with your waistline. The lower quantity of fat in this dessert also offers it the distinctly light and fluffy texture which brings out all of its flavors.

 Maritozzo

Maritozzo is a signature Roman breakfast which is a light sweet bun, cut in the middle and filled with a gorgeous filling of light and fluffy whipped cream. The sweetness of the bun is contrasted with the lightness of the almost unsweetened cream, making it a heavenly addition to a Roman food tour.
