La Capitale del Cioccolato Torino 2011

Torino (Turin) is currently hosting a major chocolate festival called La Capitale del Cioccolato from 25th March to the 3rd April.

The event is being being held in conjunction with Italy’s 150th Anniversary and celebrates the importance of Torino’s role in the chocolate industry.

The event itself is being held in Torino’s main square Piazza Vittorio Veneto. Here there are loads of marquees set up where you are able to try chocolate from some of the main producers.

Piazza Vittorio has a substantial underground car park that always seems to have spaces available, so traveling to the event by car is easy enough, but for those of you who are a little nervous of driving in such a big city, it might be best to go outside of peak traffic hours.

This is a true paradise for chocolate lovers.
