Chocolate Making Lessons in Italy-Learn to Make Chocolate in Umbria

We’ve added a chocolate making lesson to our Walking & Cooking in Umbria tour June 8-13th.  There is just one room Chocolate Makingleft on this fabulous tour, which includes a special offer with great perks.  

If you don’t manage to snag that last room, join us for a 1-day chocolate making class

Our chocolate making class will take place near Perugia, Umbria, right next door to the Perugina chocolate factory, creators of the Bacio, the Italian chocolate kiss.  The new school is designed so that each student has their own well-equipped workspace for this hands-on lesson, and plenty of chocolate to play with.

Our chocolate making lesson in Italy will be dedicated to making cioccolatini, little gift chocolates that make friends faster than Facebook. As you learn the tricks of handling chocolate like a professional, you will be encouraged to personalize your chocolates with your own creative flair.

Anita (that’s me) will be with the class to translate the Italian chocolate master’s instructions, as well as get hands-on messy. Since I love dark chocolate -milk chocolate is simply not chocolate to me – my focus will be on making the darkest cioccolatini.  I promise to share.Pot of dark chocolate

This chocolate making class is complimentary for our Umbria Walking & Cooking Tour participants.  Non-tour participants can join the chocolate making  lesson at the cost of $125 per person. 

Includes a 3-hour lesson under the tutelage of an Italian chocolate master, translation services, plenty of chocolate for your creations, apron (with your chocolate fingerprints) and anything leftover that you don’t manage to eat.
Details:  Sunday, June 13th, 10.00 am at Perugina in the San Sisto district on the outskirts of Perugia, Umbria.  This special 3-hour chocolate making workshop is limited to 14 students.  For reservations, please call 1-800-462-7911 or email for availability.

  1. I am interested in details of your Chocolate Making Lessons and/or Umbria Walking & Cooking Tour. We have a family of 5 (2 adults and three kids age 7, 9 & 11). We are looking into a trip in August 2012. Do you think this might be appropriate for us? Can you provide costs and other relevant details? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Vikki- We do lots of custom tours for families and friends, so can design a tour to suit your interests and budget. Unfortunately, chocolate making is not available in August, but we can suggest a tour in Sicily or in the Dolomites with some hands-on events. I’ll contact you by e-mail. Thanks and we look forward to hosting you in Italy! Ciao, Anita PS. For a glance at our scheduled tours, go to
