While traveling with a group of travel agents in June to the Italian Riviera I did some homework before leaving. As you know I am a gelato-holic ! Since we were going to San Remo, Rapallo, Santa Margherita and Portofino I wanted to make sure I carved out a few minutes in each area to have some gelato.
I have been disappointed in some gelato while traveling in Italy but this time it I was more than pleased with the three selections.
After finishing out tour in San Remo the bus stopped not far from the hotel to let a few of us off in front of the gelateria – Gelateria Vecchia Matuzia on Corso Matuzia. Of course we all enjoyed our gelato as we walked back to the hotel.
One afternoon we took the ferr y to Portofino for lunch and a quick visit. A quick visit it was to this charming little port and of course while I was waiting for the ferry back to Santa Margherita I spotted a gelato bar. I could not resist! While making my selection I noticed the chef creating another batch and storing it in stainless steel drums. I know I was in the right place. Gelateria Bar San Greiogio has a wonderful selection and I was in heaven.
