Venchi Italian Gourmet Chocolate-Rome, Italy

A long time ago, in 1878, a 20-year-old Italian man by the name of Silviano Venchi loved chocolate so much that he spent all his savings on two bronze cauldrons and began to experiment. He created a company that expanded throughout Italy with its Nougatine, small candies made of crushed and caramelized hazelnuts coated in dark chocolate. As well as the Chocoviar, Truffles, Gianduiotti, Cremini, Bars, Suprema spread, Gelato, and Gourmet eggs. Today, Venchi follows the same time-honored recipes and is celebrated across the world for crafting artisanal chocolates, which still nod to Torino’s iconic gianduja. Following Silvano’s values, the company uses only high-quality, all-natural ingredients without chemical additives, preserves, and so on.

We love to stop by there when we travel through Rome International Airport to see the beautiful wrappers and magnificent chocolate fountain and to taste true Italian Gelato. This company has truly earned international recognition: with more than 350 chocolate recipes and 90 gelato flavors found in more than 70 countries. To locate a Venchi Boutique near you, click here.
