How could I not love the Italian Capitol of Chocolate? Torino (AKA Turin!) is a hub of Italian cinema, modern art, historic cafes and tons more.
There’s so many amazing things about Torino. I’m a self-proclaimed chocoholic, and Torino is the mecca of chocolate in Italy. Giandujia, a paste of chocolate and hazelnuts, originated from here – the origin of beloved Nutella! It was also the birthplace of the concept of the aperitif, and the National Cinema Museum which is near and dear to me. What’s not to love? Here are my favorite places to go when I’m lucky enough to be in the city.
