Indulge Your Inner Chocoholic in Perugia

While Italy may not be as well known for its chocolate as, say, Switzerland or Belgium, the Italian city of Perugia actually is world-famous in chocoholic circles. Every October, Europe's largest chocolate fair, the Eurochocolate Festival, is held in Perugia. An annual affair since 1993, the nine-day festival offers chocolate art displays, tastings, cooking demonstrations, spa appointments and more chocolate-centric souvenir options than you ever knew existed.

Can't get to Perugia in October? You don't have to miss out on all the chocolatey fun. You can stay at the Chocohotel or tour the Perugina factory (whose blue and white wrapped Baci kisses are available worldwide). The factory, now operated by Nestle, features a test kitchen and chocolate museum, and even offers cooking classes. For more ideas, see 12 Places Every Chocolate Lover Should Visit.

Perugia Trip Reviews

Ten Great Weeks in Italy by Host Ciao
 I enjoyed Perugia and found some magnificent views since the town is built on a cliff. I also investigated the four sets of escalators that go up and down from the high Piazza dell'Italia. i have to admit that I avoided some intriguing looking walks because of the hills, but I climbed my share and figured I had better save some hills for Assisi.
