)-- Love Umbria, gourmet tour specialists, today announced the launch of a Chocolate Lovers’ Tour to coincide with Eurochocolate 2008 which takes place this year from 18th to 26th October in Perugia, Italy.
Eurochocolate is one of Europe’s largest chocolate festivals and the two four-day tours will give chocolate lovers the chance to overindulge in their favorite food without the guilt as they join thousands of other visitors at the festival. Tour participants will get the chance to sample chocolate from some of the hundreds of exhibitors at the stalls which line the streets of the historical city of Perugia. Participants will also take a chocolate-themed cooking lesson with a professional chef, visit Perugia’s chocolate factory and chocolate museum to learn about chocolate production and enjoy guided chocolate and wine tasting in nearby Montefalco.
Love Umbria founder Cristiana Bradley says, “Eurochocolate is a very important event in the Italian gourmet calendar but until now it has been relatively unknown outside of Italy. This tour offers a unique experience for chocolate lovers and is a perfect excuse to visit Umbria”.
