DATES FOR 2013 – 18th – 27th October 2013

The International Eurochocolate festival of Perugia is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The festival remains as popular as ever, with the Umbrian capital turning into a huge open-air chocolate shop, with exhibitions, workshops, internships, cooking classes, tastings, banquets and celebrations, as well as the coveted Eurochocolate Awards prize.

Each year the festival has a theme. This year is ‘EVERGREEN’ – a nod to sustainability. In previous years themes have included "Prisoners of Chocolate", “City of Chocolate”, “Chokolate Revolution,” and even “Chocolage” (the evolution of chocolate).

Perugia is a delightful medieval town and well worth exploring. Perugia can be reached by car, train or bus. If you are planning to visit during the festival you need to be prepared for the crowds, and get an early start each day.

Whilst many of our clients enjoy staying in Perugia itself for the festival (please contact us as soon as you know you’re going as accommodation is always limited), many clients also prefer to stay in the beautiful Umbrian countryside or small towns and just visit the festival for a day trip. Assisi is a beautiful town and well worth considering as an alternative.

You can see our Perugia hotels here – and remember to contact us as soon as possible if you wish to stay within the city.

If you would prefer not to stay in Perugia, you can see our hotels and guesthouses in Umbria here. We also have beautiful countryside villas and apartments
