Umbria is a small Italian region located in the heart of the peninsula. It isn’t bathed by the sea, but Lake Trasimeno makes up for this lack, representing an attraction for bathers and gourmets who want to eat fresh fish. The area then, may not be known for its coasts, but has many other things to offer. One of these is an event dedicated to chocolate pleasing every year dessert lovers: from October 19 to 28, Perugia will host the so called Eurochocolate.

The center of the regional capital will be invaded by stands showing and selling chocolate in multiple forms. You will be able to eat, participate in contests, special events and have a good time while walking through the streets of a beautiful medieval town. During the days of Eurochocolate it is also possible to book a visit to the House of Perugina Chocolate, where you will find out more about the history of chocolate in Italy and Perugina, a chocolate company founded in Perugia in 1907 producing, among other things, a series of chocolates filled with hazelnut called Baci Perugina, “kisses” that come with a love message wrapped around them.
