One of the best ice cream shops in Rio is Sorvete Itália. Offering what they call Italian style ice cream, the flavors are unlike anything you’ve sampled before. They’ve been in business now for 30 years, which partly accounts for the fact that Rio now has 20 locations. For a real treat, try their delightful doce de leite popsicle, this treat practically explodes with creamy flavor. The décor itself is something to experience, as you sit at the counter decorated with tile mosaics in the colors of the Italian flag.
