If you've had enough of gelato as the main feature of all your breaks and snacks but you still want something sweet to round off a long but rewarding meal, you can make your way to 8 Via Cassia, near Piazzale Milvio, where you will find Bar Pompi, a pastry shop renowned for its tiramisu, both in its traditional version and other types created in house, such as the heavenly strawberry tiramisu, the banana and nutella variety and the pistachio-based one.

Piazzale Milvio boasts also other two great places those who have the sweet tooth will love, Mondi, popular ice cream shop, and Il Pellicanogelato shop famous for its toppings made with chocolate, either black or white, and a sprinkle of hazelnuts.

Thankfully, Pompi's tiramisu is not available only in Piazzale Milvio, but also in its other stores in 7 Via Albalonga, San Giovanni area, and 82 Via della Croce, near Piazza di Spagna.

If you find yourself in Trastevere you can enjoy a delicious dessert at the historic pastry shop Valzani in 37a/b Via del Moro, where you can choose anything from chilli dark chocolate pralines to exquisite chocolate-coated orange peel to Roman traditional cakes and sweets such as fruit-based Pangiallo, spicy chocolate-based Panpepato and Mostaccioli.
