Rydges Fortitude Valley Brisbane
Attractions & Activities in Brisbane
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
There’s never a bad time for a decadent dessert, in my opinion – my local tip is just a minute’s walk from Rydges Fortitude Valley, where you will find La Macelleria and their fresh gelato. With an indulgent variety of flavours to choose from (I highly recommend the Cioccolato and the Caramello Salato), the gelato is made fresh each day and you should try the thick gelato shakes which are nothing short of heavenly.
