Streglio Chocolate factory

by sararosa

Has anyone taken a tour of the Streglio Chocolate factory in Turin? I have had their chocolate while in italy and I must confess it's addictive! enough for me to search for a distributer/or visit the factory. I have e-mailed them and no answer. They must be huge like Nestles Co.in USA ?

Re: Streglio Chocolate factory

by Lacristina

Have not visited the factory, but Nestles, though huge, is a Swiss company, ($75 billion in sales). Streglio is quite small, though it used to be owned by Parmalat, a huge food conglomerate in Italy. It was sold two years ago to a small family firm, Borsci Industria Liquori SpA. It only sold for 2.25 million euros according to an article I found.

Why not try writing them again?

You can read about Turin’s chocolate industry here, including Streglio.

And it appears the March chocolate festival/industry show in Turin which started in 2005 is continuing. Sounds like a perfectly good reason to head to Italy to me.

Thank you for answering LaCristina, I have looked up all info you suggested but still have not come up with info concerning a tour, or a distributor for the Streglio company that would ship their chocolate to the USA. for sure there are chocolate lovers out there in VT land that have the answers living right in Torino!

Streglio is a company dating back to the early 1900 and not as big as you might imagine. The facility is located in None which is some 15 miles south of Torino. Not sure factory tours are available. Their products are excellent but, if you are really into chocolate, you might want to try Gobino products. It's a relatively young company but many believe it's the best chocolate available on the market. Products can be found in several "pasticcerie" in town or at their factory/store near Torino downtown. Reference here:

Thank you Antonello for your response to my Streglio Chocolate factory question. I spent some time last evening on the Guido Gobino website and the chocolate company's photo's left me wanting to hop the next flight to Torino. Will be in the area next Spring and can't wait to indulge. Chocolate and wine it must be in my blood lines! Ha!

Let me know when you'll be in town, it will be a pleasure to suggest more chocolate places.

Travel Tips for Torino

Railroad Station PORTA NUOVA

by draguza

When Turin was made the capital of the Savoy kingdom, there came a need for a central station, and Porta Nuova is still today the most important train station in Turin. Porta Nuova was designed by architect Alessandro Mazzucchetti and built between 1860 and 1867. The train station was modeled on the King’s Cross in London, although the interior has since been completely restructured. The very first railroad tracks of the kingdom departed from Porta Nuova – they connected Genoa and Turin with side routes to Alessandria (through Novara) and Lago Maggiore. Today Porta Nuova is an important transportation hub in Turin – exiting the train station you come to piazza Carlo Felice and via Roma. In addition to the ticket booths, cafes, bars, and newsstands, Porta Nuova also provides travelers with bookshops and a tourism booth (Turismo Torino).

On the top!

by piccolina

You must go up on the Mole Antonelliana. You'll be up thanks to a glass lift who will carry you on the top for a price of € 6.80.
With this ticket you'll be able to visit also the "Museo del Cinema"

by call_me_rhia

For cultural visits i would suggest the nearby town of Rivoli: the castle is really amazing and I believe they regularily hold art exhibitions in there. To enjoy the great outdoors the natural park Capanne di Marcarolo is a nice place to go to - bring a swimsuit when there - and bathe in the chilly river...

Public transports

by Polly74

Turin has an efficient system of city connections whit busses and trams. Currently, the first metropolitan line is under construction. Both urban and suburban areas are served by an efficient network. Busses and trams cross the city from morning (the first departure for almost all lines is at about 05.00) to late at night (24.00).

Tickets can be bought in tobacconists, newsagents and public places who exhibit the special sign. There are various ticket possibilities: an ordinary urban ticket valid for 70 minutes; a block of 10 tickets etc…

Typical Italian / just the food that counts

There are very cheap menu's especially at noon for about 8-10 euro's. We choose a la carte. It was saturday evening. About 20 people eating and a lot of take away (pizza) customers; Nice staff.
Not for a cosy romantic dinner whit candle light I still have the bill :
2 coperto 4 euro
1/2 acqua min.: 1,50
1 chardonnay san margharita. 10
1 finochiona 4
1 pesce spada pom and rucola: 11.50
1 risotto pescatora: 6,50
1 sogliola: 11
1 patate fritta: 2,50
1 spanaci al burro: 3,50 Total 54,50
Risotto was very good as was the sole.
