posted by Home In Italy on September 30th, 2011

If you are a chocolate lover you can’t miss the annual chocolate festival in Umbria.                         

The town of Perugia is often referred as the Chocolate city, as it’s the town where the “Baci Perugina” chocolates are produced.

During those 9 days there will be a large display of chocolate fountains, chocolate sculptures and many stands selling all kinds of chocolate to suit everyone’s taste. 

The festival organizes also chocolate making workshops and gastronomic tours, for those that want to have a real chocolate experience.

We offer several villas in the Perugia area if you want to take advantage of a bit of relax and some chocolate tastings!
