Forget the milk chocolate you make using the powder box at home. You have never tasted the real hot chocolate until you order one in Rome. It is a dark, thick and steaming drink. So step in one of the old-fashioned cafes and pasticcerie and order the melted chocolate with wiped cream on top and maybe some handmade cookies on the side. A hint: Italians call it cioccolata calda!
