We visited with a family of five on November 1st. Despite having asked and been told, while making the reservation, that production would be ongoing, we were disappointed to find out it wasn't. As a consolation, without us even asking for it, the employee reduced our entrance fee significantly and started the kids off with some free chocolate. The tour... More

We pre-booked our chocolate tour, what a fabulous 2 hour activity. Teenagers enjoyed it as well, lots of chocolate to taste & followed by a shopping trip to Perugia. (Made up for the awful accommodation we stayed in!). Really recommended

A little challenging to find even with GPS. Very accommodating staff. Fascinating to watch assembly line production. Lots of opportunity to sample then purchase chocolate products. Staff are very generous with freebies. Quite adult and kid friendly.

Our initial attempt to visit the factory on a rainy day this summer didn't work out, as you have to book in advance. Don't be put of by the closed gate and the factory security. When we finally did get to visit we found it very enjoyable, despite the presence of some hyper American girls over-dosing on chocolate!! The tour... More

Spent a few hours at Casa di Cioccolato & enjoyed it very much! The history of the company was very interesting & the factory tour was quite fun! Baci are a family favorite so we enjoyed watching them be made. 1400 Baci are made every minute but our guide wasn't sure how many were made in a year. The tasting... More

We're still enjoying the treats we bought at the Perugina Chocolate Factory. The tour was fun. I didn't know the beginnings of different chocolates and their names. The questions I'd had since I was a child were answered and the yummy chocolates I'd been dreaming of in recent years were consumed :). There is a fee for entrance, which surprised... More
