(CHOCOLATE, WINE, AND CHEESE!)

Highly recommended! Torino was fun, delicious, and beautiful... and felt very comfortable and welcoming. Torino is home to over 150 cheeses, wines too numerous to count, and "birthed" the chocolate bar as we know it today. They also have a drink called "bicerin"... an absolutely divine concoction of chocolate, coffee, and whipped cream - delicious at any time, but especially delightful on a cold evening. When Nancy and I were here, there was a display of artistic holiday lights at various locations in the main part of town, each done by a different artist, with individual themes. We sampled many wines, a number of cheeses, and had more than one bicerin! Of course, we simply could *not* be in Torino without indulging in some of the many chocolate creations in the multitude of confectioner's throughout the city. In fact, Torino has the 'ChocoPass'... a book of coupons for chocolate items from listed chocolatiers - well worth the money! After Torino, Nancy is heading home to Denver, and I will be on my way to Switzerland.
