Gelateria Ilardo Giovanni

Foro Italico Umberto I, 1, 90133 Palermo PA, Italy

Gelato, the rich Italian ice cream infused with fruits and spices, is a deliciously unavoidable part of Palermo. There’s no better place to sample the flavors of Sicily than the Gelateria Ilardo Giovanni, the city’s oldest gelateria. It’s said that when Giuseppe Garibaldi came here during the unification of Italy, he was served a trio of flavors in the colors of the Italian flag.
