The city of Turin is known everywhere as the Italian city of Chocolate.
The long love story between Turin and chocolate started in 1560, when King Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy decided to gift everyone in the city a cup of hot chocolate in order to celebrate the moving of the Duchy’s capital from Chambéry to Turin.
Since 2003 a Chocolate festival is organised yearly in the city: CioccolaTó.
The chocolate professionals have hereby the opportunity to show people their art while tourists and citizens have the opportunity to taste different types of chocolate.
In November Turin will once again be hosting this fair. Be sure to not miss this trip in the Turinese chocolate culture!
