People Watching in Piazza di San Lorenzo

Roman life takes place out in the open, in the big piazzas. Ciampini is the ideal place to sit down over a cappuccino or a glass of wine and watch the spectacle of tourists and locals intermingling.

I'd go so far as to say that Ciampini has some of the best gelato in Rome, not Giolitti, which is just okay. However, I haven't tasted all the reputable gelato in the city so I can't say Ciampini is *the* best! Hopefully I'll get to make a comprehensive gelato crawl someday...
