As the largest cosmopolitan city in Italy, Milan is renowned for its fantastic fashion, brilliant football, outstanding opera and vibrant nightlife. Teeming with museums, historic monuments, awe-inspiring churches and fabulous art galleries, this city is the epitome of indulgence.

It is no wonder then, why this astounding city is also world famous for its vast array of delicious gelaterias. Gelato, a fine Italian ice cream, is popular with locals and tourists alike. However, to find the best gelato in town it is crucial to know exactly where to go.

Ceffè Sargenti - Gelateria artigianale

Ciccolatini Italiani is a heavenly gelateria located near the Piazza Duomo, and to sit on the sunny terrace enjoying wonderful homemade Italian ice cream whilst admiring the immense and breathtaking gothic cathedral is a perfect start to any trip. From exotic fruits such as mango and kiwi to divine chocolate and caramel, some of the best flavours can be found here. This lovely little gelateria is definitely not to be missed.

A stone’s throw from Ciccolatini Italiani is the luxurious and glamorous 5 star Park Hyatt Milan hotel. For a real gastronomic experience, splash out on a splendid meal at this five star hotel’s VUN restaurant. Along with a fabulously inventive menu, the VUN restaurant serves the most exhilarating selection of gelato desserts. The raspberry gelato is especially sublime.

For simply delicious and intense flavours, head away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of the city and visit Il Massimo del Gelato. This innovative and well-known gelateria specialises in chocolate varieties of gelato such as mint chocolate and chocolate with cherries, and has a wonderful selection of sorbets, smoothies and frozen yoghurts to suit any preference. Il Massimo del Gelato is well worth the trip.

With several gelato shops across the globe, the unique and spectacular Grom gelateria is open every day of the week and is famous for its wide range of top quality Italian ice cream. Perhaps a tad more commercial than some of the other amazing gelaterias in the city, Grom is definitely up there with the best. Check out their website at www.grom.it.

Il Gelato Centigusti is the place to go for unusual yet delightful flavours of gelato. With over one hundred varieties available ranging from the classic pistachio to the rare and innovative black sesame or celery flavours, this popular gelateria is second to none.

Biano Latte is another fantastic ice cream parlour that offers a menu wholly made up of gelato, coffee and cream based desserts. Family run and providing authentic Italian gelato made with completely natural ingredients, Biano Latte has a delicate edge and astoundingly good ice cream.

So, for dreamy and authentic Italian gelato ice cream in any flavour imaginable, visit the superb city of Milan and tour the best gelaterias that Italy has to offer.
