This gelateria is nearby the two towers. We accidentally walked by and stopped for a gelato. The pistacchio with chocolade is so good! A must when in Bologna.

We had gelato all over Bologna, and this was one of the top places. Can't remember exactly which flavors we had, but it was very good.

You must not miss this ice cream palour, which is very close to the twin towers! It is very popular with students and although very busy, the queue moves very quickly.
