Rome Gelato Tour: Il Gelato di Claudio Torcè

After eating at both San Crispino and Grom within 15 minutes, we had officially had a lot of gelato. BUT on E’s Great Gelato Tour you can always find room for more. San Crispino and Grom are only about a 2 minutes walk apart.  That is a very little time to eat a lot of […]
