Viaggio in Busan


Busan is more than just Gamcheon Culture Village and famous beaches like Haeundae and Gwangalli. Escape the bustling areas of Busan and unwind at Viaggio, located in the Gangseo district and right along the West Nakdong River.

Viaggio is set in a 3-storey building with a spacious outdoor dining area that offers a river view, and this is the perfect place for families and friends to hang out.

If you are not a fan of brown cheese, opt for the Fruits Croffle or Nutella Croffle, which costs KRW16,000 (~USD11.45) each.

Instead of brown cheese, the Fruits Croffle will be topped with freshly cut fruits such as strawberries, bananas and grapes, and the Nutella Croffle will be topped with a generous spread of Nutella, some slices of bananas and a few pieces of dark chocolate. All croffles come with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
