Chocolate Fair in Florence

The Italian city of Florence will host a decadent chocolate fair in January.

As if a visit to the city of Florence wasn't enjoyable enough, holidaymakers heading to the city in late January will have the opportunity to attend an outrageously indulgent chocolate fair.

This event will see the finest produce of Tuscany's top chocolatiers go on show for visitors to sample.

The decadent occasion, which will take place at the Piazza Santa Croce between January 24th and 27th, will also involve games, shows and live music.

In previous years there have been photography workshops and other events to encourage interaction and involvement among visitors.

Florence is one of Italy's most picturesque cities and on a level with Rome and Venice as one of the country's top tourist locations.

It is home to landmarks including the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral, better known as the Duomo, and the Fountain of Neptune sculpture in Piazza della Signoria.

In 1992 the city centre was declared a world heritage site by Unesco.
