I'm disappointed in the uneven reviews of Giuliano's top-notch gelateria. I've owned a cute place up in the castle district since '99, and I recommend Tropicale to everyone. The location on the lake across from the ferry landing couldn't be more perfect ~ for watching the world go by, or refueling after a hike around Isola Maggiore. There are other... More

Stopped off here for a panino and a cappuccino and stayed for the gelato. Right on the shore of Lake Trasimeno, next to the church and parking. Excellent service, coffee and ixe cream.

We popped in here many times during our stay in Passignano and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The ice-cream is great with the range of lovely flavours you expect to find in Italy and all the ones I tried were delicious. When we came on Saturday night after dinner the place was packed with local families all... More

We stopped here for an Italian gelato and the surprise was really bad. Bad quality of the product and unfortunately we saw a mouse walking in the outside area and we couldn't sit.

one of the worst icecream ever tasted. they say "artigianale!" "italiano!" .. oh god really, it's a joke?! You pay by balls, this means that you'll receive small balls in big cups. the taste is terrible, if u ask for "crema" the taste is of vanilla's pudding!!! not even close to the worst crema ever tasted. the others flavours like...

Gelateria Tropical is in the centre of Passignano and offers a fabulous array of homemade ice creams and sorbets. You can sit in the covered area outside and eat a simple cone or a fancy sundae. They also serve light lunches such as panini. It's nice too just to have a glass of something and look out at the lake... More

Tropical Gelateria, Piazza Grifi 6, but it is not really in Perugia...the place is 06065 Passignano sul Trasimeno, Italy (near Perugia). The Gelato was excellent, second best I found in Italy, and I spent a month trying lots of gelato. I spoke with the owner who make the gelato on site, and he takes great pride in it...and does a...
