Chocolate shopping in Milan

In a city full of exquisite sweet things, hip and oh-so-pretty Lula is a standout. Purists prefer the simple slabs scattered with nuts or the jewel-coloured French jellies, while those of a more decorative bent snap up votive- and cornucopia-shaped chocolates. Flavours run from traditional to highly experimental. Seasonal creations include baroque Easter eggs and crystallised flowers for Christmas or St Valentines Day cakes, which really do make the heart beat faster. For extra gift oomph, there’s vintage cotton pouches or gold-centred bowls to fill.
This Piedmontese chocolatier has basic blocks, highly original products including ‘chocavier’ (90% cocoa granules), cocoa dusted fave (beans) and truffle cigars. Be warned: it just takes one smear of their gianduja cream spread and there’s no going back to Nutella.
