Turin City Guide
Chocolate & Sweets
Many people may not realize this, but Turin has a long tradition for making chocolate. One of the famous drinks in the area is called a bicerin. This was created in the 19th century and it consists of melted chocolate, coffee and milk. If you are looking for chocolate to eat then you will want to try the famous gianduja (gianduia), which is a blend of cocoa, sugar and hazelnuts. Some makers of this chocolate delight include Guido Gobino, Nutella and Peyrano.
This is a thin and crispy breadstick. The two most famous variations are the stirato, which means straight, and rubata, which means hand rolled. Legend has it that this Torinese invention helped save the life of Victor Amadeus II (The first Savoy king), who was sick with stomach ailments.
