Turin Chocolate Capital Tour: Experience Gianduia & Other Cacao Specialties
  • Turin Chocolate Capital Tour: Experience Gianduia & Other Cacao Specialties

    Turin is the Italian capital of chocolate and if you are a lover of the so-called "black gold", you cannot let this chance slip!

    Turin’s love affair with chocolate begins in the 16th Century, when ’the food of gods’ was first imported to Italy by Charles V. It immediately became popular amongst the nobility and in royal courts, and a century later the first license was granted to sell to the public. By this time, in Turin, several manufacturing processes had already been tried out, which led, over time, to the creation of the famous Giandujotto, the indulgent Bicerin, and in more modern times, the inimitable spreadable chocolate - Nutella.

    Led by your local gourmand guide, you will have an unforgettable experience tasting some of the best products in town: Bicerin in the café of the same name, where it was invented; Giandujotto and the pralines of an award-winning master chocolatier and the "Pinguino" ice cream of Pepino!

      This tour was a good introduction to getting about central Turin and, most importantly, a delicious introduction to the city's chocolate. The stops were enjoyable -- an ice cream on a stick (a "penguin") in the cafe where they were invented, an interesting talk (and sample) on how the Guadiana (chocolate/hazelnut combination) was invented at Guido Castanga (a high end chocolate shop), and a beautiful Bicerin at a historic cafe to end. Chiara was an excellent guide who knows the history of her city and her chocolate well. She was fun to talk with and made me feel quite welcome in Turin.

        Calificación General: 10/10
