On day two in Rome I visited Trastevere, a cool but still touristy neighborhood across the Tiber. To my surprise our visit coincided with the Chocolate Fair. Lines of tents filled the piazza with chocolate in all forms. From bars, bon bon and bites to crafted shapes like stiletto heels, wrenches and proscuitto there seemed to be every chocolate form you could imagine. Additionally there were chocolate cannolis, chocolate donuts and, what you see here, sipping chocolate. What we think of as hot chocolate seemed a bit more high test here in Italy. It is as thick as it looks. The Canadian and I had a tough time finishing this off with out major sugar shock. Three sips and you are done unless you get a fresh brioche or baguette and do the ‘ol chocolate dip. Smart right? Well, we unfortunately couldn’t find fresh bread but we did use our sugar high to propel us on foot all the way to the Trevi Fountain.
