Helado. Aisukurīmu. Crème glacée. Sorvete. No matter how you say it, ice cream is delicious in every language. There’s a shared love for this frozen treat—one that transcends seasons, borders, and cultures. That’s why one day every year Uber brings the ice cream to you, no matter where you are. It’s that time of year again, #UberIceCream is coming to over 400 cities on Friday, July 15.
This year in Montreal, we are thrilled to partner with FCO di Fiumicino, a local Italian shop, to deliver premium and indulgent gelato across the city. As July is strawberry season, you’ll get to experience the freshness and sweetness of Racine Petits Fruits‘ strawberries with every gelato bite.
To take the Italian theme to the next level, one lucky winner will fly to Rome to eat more gelato. You’re not dreaming! By successfully requesting #UberIceCream this Friday, you’ll get a chance to win 2 round-trip tickets to beautiful Rome, Italy. Check out the details here.

About FCO di FiumicinoAt FCO, we have one simple dream: to give Montrealers an unforgettable tasting experience that not only looks & tastes Italian, but is Italian on every level.
We named our concept FCO, after the acronym for Fiumicino Airport in Rome. We crossed the Atlantic to gather Rome’s most mouth-watering recipes including all of the traditional ingredients that go with them. And it should come as no surprise that we imported an Italian pizza oven – the first of its kind in Quebec!
