Full description
On this small group tour, you'll get to sample hot or cold drinks (according to the season) and taste fresh desserts created by experienced pastry chefs using local produce. Accompanied by a local expert, you may get to sample Turinese specialities like: • Gianduiotti, an ingot-shaped chocolate created in Turin 1852. Created with a unique mixture of Piedmont hazelnut, cocoa and sugar, they are incredibly creamy. • Bicerin, a layered drink made of espresso, drinking chocolate, and whole milk. • Marron Glace, a chestnut candied in sugar syrup and glazed originating from Piedmont. • Pinguino (penguin),  an artisan gelato covered in crunchy dark chocolate. • Cremino, a dessert composed of three layers of chocolate. As well as tasting these delicious treats, you will get to experience Turin like a local, as your guide takes you to easily missed places hidden off the beaten track.

The patisserie tour is actually a chocolate tasting. † You will enter unique buildings from the 19th century. The history of Turin and its chocolate is an important part of the tour. The walk is not long. The tour lasted 1.5 hours instead of 2.5 hours. The guide is involved and enthusiastic.
