Very good chocolates. brand established in 1796. Kind of pricey, is it the effect of the reputation? Communication in a mix of French and English but was able to manage with very polite staff. A little sampler would not hurt them. But that does not...More

A guide took us to Majani and so glad she did-we did a return visit. The shop has such old world charm, it is beautiful. The chocolate is to die for. Loved the Classico Fiat. Will look online

This is a very posh chocolate shop but the chocolates are worth the price, we tried them on our last visit and a return visit was a top priority
