10 Italian Gelato Flavors You Must Try

Every time I walk from Tiber to Guarini,I see at least one student eating gelato, no matter what the temperature and the weather are! While some students tend to be conservative in terms of the flavors they choose, I always experiment and try something new! This is a list of the unique gelato flavors you can only find in Italy!

  • bacio – Literally translated as “kiss”, this gelato flavor is named after the famous Perugian chocolate candies. It is a mix of chocolate and hazelnut. You’ll love this if you’re a chocolate fan!bacio gelato, 10 Italian Gelato Flavors You Must Try, italian gelato, italian food, study abroad in italy, rome
  • castagna – The chestnut flavor is not particularly popular among tourists, but definitely worth trying. This is a perfect flavor for those who prefer mild tastes, rather than an “explosion of flavor”.castagna, bacio gelato, 10 Italian Gelato Flavors You Must Try, italian gelato, italian food, study abroad in italy, rome
  • cannella – This is cinnamon, but it is not super-hot: just a nice, genuine cinnamon flavor. It can be a great combination with other flavors.cannella, bacio gelato, 10 Italian Gelato Flavors You Must Try, italian gelato, italian food, study abroad in italy, rome
