Italian Adventures in Chocolate and Truffles

Visit Palazzo Seneca this October for a decadent gourmet escape, incorporating the ultimate combination of chocolates and truffles, with a visit to the Eurochocolate Festival in Perugia and truffle hunting in the gastronomic town of Norcia in Umbria.


The Eurochocolate Festival, from 18th – 27th October in the hilltop city of Perugia, is touted as the biggest chocolate celebration in Europe and as part of Palazzo Seneca’s irresistible chocolate and truffle package guests will soak up the festive atmosphere in Perugia, visit one of the local chocolate factories and taste some of their delicious chocolate truffles. Walking through the medieval streets you will also feast upon chocolate sculptures and stalls selling chocolate cakes, bars and fountains.

Back in Norcia, which is famous for being the capital of the Italian black truffle, guests can join a professional truffle hunter and his dog to unearth some of Italy’s most prized fungi, whilst discovering the beauty of this magical region and participating in its oldest tradition. Palazzo Seneca is also offering a delicious meal in the Vespasia restaurant, with the chance to sample these seasonal specialities along with their very own home made chocolates.

The Sibillini National Park – just minutes away from Palazzo Seneca – has opportunities for walking, hiking, horse riding, rafting and cycling – the perfect balanceto festival indulgence.
