An unbeatable combination of famous Umbrian hospitality and world-class culinary professionalism, the Eurochocolate Festival and Awards descend on this Medieval city of amber-coloured walls, meandering streets and densely-packed, glorious religious art and architecture in a wave of finely-crafted decadence. All the main piazzas and many central streets are scattered with stalls selling chocolate, blended into ice creams, cakes, pastries and even savoury dishes as well as in its unadulterated form. It's used as an artistic medium, discussed in great depth at chocolate forums, experimented with in laboratories and celebrated at banquets, tasting sessions and exhibitions every day for over a week in October. There are also plenty of learning opportunities, so you 'll be able to leave knowing how to taste and cook with chocolate, and how to create your own little endorphin-boosting artistic masterpieces.
