From Febrary 4th to 7th 2010, Tuscany’s capital will host one of the sweetest and most delightful fairs in Italy: the Artisan Chocolate Fair. This is an annual event where tourists and locals are looking to get their chocolate fix surrounded by countless flavors and smells: almond, walnut, lavender, pistachio and peperoncino bars, spirits and are just a few of the products that you can sample.
Tuscany is actually Italy’s second most important region for chocolate production and the first for historical tradition. However, the fair is not only a celebration of Italian chocolate: the event, indeed, will also host international maître chocolatiers, who will graciously display both their traditional and out-of-the-ordinary creations to the public.
The fair takes place in Piazza Santa Croce and the program includes sampling, games, shows and live music. Also, in previous years, there has been photography workshops and other interactive events. There is basically something for everyone.
If you wish to visit the city, and at the same time, to enjoy the Artisan Chocolate Fair, make a reservation now in one of our Florence apartments. Don’t miss the opportunity to indulge yourself. This is cocoa paradise!
