Chocolate and Gelato, the perfect Italian duo!
Tuscany and Florence in particular, had a very important role in the introduction and diffusion of chocolate in Italy, in fact the recipe for a hot chocolate drink specially designed for the Medici family was once a carefully guarded "state secret"! Our trip into the world of Tuscan chocolate and gelato begins in the morning with a visit to a local chocolate making workshop, where we'll a watch a demonstration showing how top quality chocolate is made and then get the opportunity to taste a number of different types of craftsman made chocolate. Then we’ll have a light lunch in a local restaurant (2 courses+wine/water/coffee) and after lunch we'll visit a nearby ice cream parlour, to find out why Italian gelato tastes so good! and of course! a tasting.
