Eating Italian ice cream should be an Olympic sport, or an extreme sport, or at least an activity that deserves a medal.

The medal is for.........choosing the right flavour, or maybe for finding the perfect combinatiuon of flavours, or perhaps even for managing to eat every single flavour in one week. Each of these is an impossible task.

I have travelled throughout Italy, but in my opinion Sorrento has the most perfect Italian ice cream, and Italy has the most perfect ice cream in the world.

I think there were thirty or so different chocolate-type flavours alone, There is a flavour for every single chocolate bar you know, and some extras to create surprises. Try the combination of one of the rich chocolate flavours with a tangy sorbet, or add some fresh fruit (though ice cream perfectionists might consider this an adulteration of the art).

Sorrento is dotted with great ice cream parlours, but my favourite was just down the road from the Grand Hotel Capodimonte.

Address: Throughout Sorrento.
