Love is in the Air (Chocolate Festival, Florence, Italy, 2012) ...

... that is, if you love chocolate and/or you have a Valentine. 

It is that time of year again, when the wonderful chocolate festival returns to Florence, Italy, in time for Santo Valentino.  I don't have my own Valentine, but, please, do not allow that to stop you from showering me with delicious chocolate from all the regions of Italy.

Please note, however, that beginning tomorrow (Friday, 10 February 2012 through Sunday, 19 February 2012), you can get your chocolate fix at Piazza Repubblica instead of Santa Croce.


  1. Is a chocolate salami cake-like or is the consistency more like fudge? Either way, I crave a slice! The artistry on the cookies is lovely and I wish I could jump into the photo and taste them. Please have one - - or two - - for me.

  2. Hi! i have enjoyed reading your blog so much as i am studying abroad in florence this semester. and like you i am from southern california. my friends and i went to the chocolate festival today and loved it. do you have any other suggestions on festivals or awesome things for a group of college age girls to do in florence or the surrounding areas?

    1. Great. Very happy to hear you're enjoying the blog.
      Yes, quick. Take the Lazzi bus to Viareggio either this Sunday 19 or next Sunday 26 February for a day at Carnevale.
      And contact me via email.
