More About Gelato in Italy

While traveling with a group of travel agents in June to the Italian Riviera I did some homework before leaving.  As you know I am a gelato-holic !  Since we were going to San Remo, Rapallo, Santa Margherita and Portofino  I wanted to make sure I carved out a few minutes in each area to have some gelato.

I have been disappointed in some gelato while traveling in Italy but this time it I was more than pleased with the three selections.

After finishing out tour in San Remo the bus stopped not far from the hotel to let a few of us off in front of the gelateria – Gelateria Vecchia Matuzia on Corso Matuzia.  Of course we all enjoyed our gelato as we walked back to the hotel.

One afternoon we took the ferr y to Portofino for lunch and a quick visit.  A quick visit it was to this charming little port and of course while I was waiting for the ferry back to Santa Margherita I spotted a gelato bar.  I could not resist!  While making my selection I noticed the chef creating another batch and storing it in stainless steel drums.  I know I was in the right place.  Gelateria Bar San Greiogio has a wonderful selection and I was in heaven.

While walking back from the ferry to the hotel in Santa Margherita I spotted another gelateria and decided that I would try that one after dinner.  There were a few of us agents that decided we wanted pizza and wine for dinner that night.  After our dinner we walked back to the hotel and of course stopped for gelato at Lato G.  All of us were extremely pleased so much so that one of the agents went back for another helping. So if you are in these areas of Italy please go to these gelaterias.  You will not be disappointed.
