EuroChocolate in Perugia Italy

This past weekend I planned a ladies trip to Perugia to indulge ourselves in every woman's favorite food...chocolate! The EuroChocolate festival in Perugia is supposedly the biggest and best chocolate festival in all of Europe. It was awesome, chocolate everywhere and in every flavor imaginable! The phrase "posso assaggiare..." (can I taste...) was my best friend. Perugia is up on top of a big hill and the view is beautiful.

It's going on next weekend too, so hurry and plan your girls trip! It's about a 4-5 hour drive south of Vicenza area. All of the hotels in Perugia book months in advance, but we booked last minute stayed in an adorable agriturismo outside Assisi and toured around Assisi our second day there (beautiful!). When you get to Perugia the best thing to do is park at the mini metro station (look for signs to the "Fontivegge") pay Euro 1.50 each way and take the little mini metro (super cool looking, google it) to the top of the mountain where Centro Perugia and the Chocolate festival are located. Parking at the station is free during the festival.

  3. I love the idea of a chocolate festival, wish i had been there! Your kitchen is actually pretty awesome, you have quite a few cupboards and a dishwasher! I've resorted to using my couch storage as my pantry, bad I know! But ya gotta do what ya gotta do. And lastly I am so going to visit sometime while i'm on this end of the world and out of all the places you guys have gone I love the villages on the cliffs the very best. So maybe sometime i'll get to see them in person.
