The Grattachecca is a Rome


AUGUST IN ROME: What can you do to cool off? Take a swim in the Tiber river?..No....go to a

pool in Rome? possible....but it is necessary to check the cost, they can be very expensive. So

then, we can tell you what we think is the best advice. If you find yourself in Rome, in August, get

yourself a "grattachecca " with us! So you don't know what that is??? Well,, let us explain what it


The most important thing is to not confuse a grattachecca with a sicilian granita ( .Granita in

English is slush/water ice). There is no comparison and only tasting it will you understand how

different a Grattachecca is from even the most famous Sicilian Granita.v
