If you love chocolate and are in Perugina I highly recommend a stop at the Baci Perugina Chocolate Factory. You can have a tour or the plant, taste chocolates, watch a movie about the history of Baci Perugina and tour the chocolate museum. I visited and had a lovely tour with Italian speaking guides, but there are English guides too... More

We booked the factory tour for a summer Friday afternoon. You need reservations and English tours are at limited times. To get there you can take the coach that picks up people in Perugia or drive to the factory in San Sisto which we chose to do. They have covered parking that supports solar panels close to the entrance. Perugina... More

We had been recommended to try the Perugina Chocolate Factory tour, and we made an afternoon reservation for an English language tour. Our tour guide was very good, and spoke decent English, but she had to contend with a group that was a bit too large, and had too many out of control children in it. Made it difficult for... More

Must see and must taste Baci We have been with a group of colleagues from faculty and we had a real fun. There is a tour that presents the production process, the Museum and the chocolate shop where you can buy these amazing chocolates called Baci.

The tour of the Perugina Chocolate Factory was a highlight of our trip to Perugia. Note: reservations are a must, especially for the English tour. It started off with w a 10 min video of the history of the company, then a tour of the museum, which was interesting and informative, and then on to factory tour during which we... More

A great look into the history and making of Baci Perugina. The tour lasted about an hour and a half which ended at the gift shop, which there was plenty to buy.

When we were waiting for our tour we were surprised to see a very large group of American teenagers joining our group (there were at least 30 people in that... More

Being a chocoholic, the visit to the factory was a must! We booked a tour (essential) and were not at all disappointed - it consisted of a short history of Perugino, how the chocolates/biscuits/sweets are made, the chocolate-making process, a visit to the museum, a chocolate tasting and a walk above a section of the factory in action. The chocolate... More

Perugia is a lovely city outside the main tourist roads. It does not boast a main attraction, but the city historical centre, located on top of a hill is definitely worth a visit. The view from the top is spectacular. If you like chocolate you can take the chocolate tour from the city centre, which will take you to the... More
