Italy's incomparable version of ice cream is done proud by this terrific trio
Frozen (but not too much!)
Northern Italy is where this country's light, creamy, and totally scrumptious take on ice cream first became popular in the first half of the 20th century, and gelato is a firm favourite here in Bologna, as well. One of the best spots to enjoy it is Galliera 49 (because it's at Via Galliera 49), with dozens of flavours of gelato, sorbets, and granita ices. Other opine that the best in town is to be found at Cremeria Funivia, with locations on Piazza Cavour and at Via Porrettana 158. Here, in addition to the classics, you can find some funkier, less traditional flavours such as melon (one of the most popular) and rum chocolate; the granita ices are also popular. Thirdly, there's L'Eclisse at Via Francesco Zanardi 247, which is less well known than the others but is also a giant of gelato. Oh my, how to decide? Well, try all three!
