Turin, Milan, and Parma are famous for their before-dinner-drink-with-unlimited-free-food, also known as the aperitivo tradition. Turin is one of Italy’s major chocolate producers, probably best known for its gianduiotto chocolate. When you visit Turin which is Italy’s chocolate capital, sip a cioccolato caldo. This winter-buster comes very thick, hot, and agreeably bitter, topped generously with whipped cream. Sample bicerin, a layered hot-chocolate-and-espresso drink served in glass cups, available only in Turin, or try giandujotto, a foil-wrapped, chocolate-hazelnut candy.
