Turin  is the Kingdom of  one the  best chocolate  in  the world, named Gianduja

Proposed  in  various  types (cream, warm  and  liquid,  as cakes  and pastry’s  ingredient…) our  chocolate  has  the power  to  create always  the  same kind of effect: it makes you feel  in Heaven for a while thanks its unique taste.

Besides,  if  we  add  the breathless  beauty  of  historical  cafes and chocolate houses in  the  heart  of  the city, then we  are  sure  you will not  resist to this charming tour.

But it doesn’t stop here.

We believe in traditions as much as we think it’s important to constantly improve and innovate those traditions with a kind and smart touch of modernity.

That’s why during this experience we’ll introduce you the modern Chocolate’s Great Masters; their marvellous atelier, their philosophy… and their irresistibly delicious creations as well!

Last but not the least: how about icecream?

Well, we are sure to surprise you with one of the best Italian gelato in the world! (New York Times says so and we ensure it!)

Therefore, we guarantee to awaken your senses and tickle your tastebuds with:

-The finest selection of fancy artisanal chocolate, 100% made in Turin, including The Giandujotto, of course;

-The famous Bicerin, the traditional hot drink native to Turin, made of espresso, drinking chocolate, and whole milk served layered in a small rounded glass. (In the category irresistibly delicious!);

-A typical local dessert with a long past;

-Heavenly icecream.

Having sayed that, we keep a bit of surprise effect and we can’t wait to share our local Gods’Nectare with you: come  to discover the royal sweet treats made in Turin and selected by I Eat Food Tours!
