It’s a cliché, but really, do not miss out on Milan’s gelaterias! With the look of an old-fashioned seaside ice-cream parlour, the tiny Rinomata (‘renowned’) Gelateria still retains its original 1950s fittings and varnished wood cabinets that are stacked with ice-cream cones. Ideally located (almost too much so in terms of tourist traffic) at the confluence of the two canals, it’s in a prime position for filling up on ice cream before a stroll down the Navigli. Homemade to friendly owner Geppo’s family recipe, a selection of 40 fruity sorbets and creamy ice creams are available any day of the year, in flavours like bacio, zabaglione, tiramisu and cre`me caramel. Every year Geppo invents a new flavour to add into the mix – recent ones include chocolate pear and rice pudding. In the winter, the seductive smell of Nutella crepes spills out into the street. In the summer, locals and tourists alike crowd in for the granite (Sicilian Slush Puppies), frullati (smoothies) and straight up ice cream by the bucket load.
