Chocolate recommendations in Tuscany/Umbria?

BernieBrewer | Aug 27, 2009 02:04 PM

While in Melbourne two years ago, my wife and I took a "chocolate tour" of the city. As a surprise for her, I would love to plan a "chocolate tour" of Tuscany and Umbria for our trip in Septebmer. We will be making stops in the following cities:

Orvieto
Assisi
Montepulciano
Pienza
Montalcino
Castellina
Radda
San Gim
Lucca
Riomaggiore (Liguria, I know!)
Bologna (again, not Tuscany or Umbria, but we fly out of Bologna Marconi)

If anyone has recommendations of where to find especially good chocolate items of any kind -- whether at markets, restaurants, gelateria, pasticceria, or anywhere else -- I would be grateful. I'm very familiar with the Perugina legacy and the Euro Chocolate fest in Perugia in October, but I'm most interested in some of the smaller, more out-of-the-way finds. Thanks!
