We took the little tour bus from the centre of Perugia to the Baci factory and really enjoyed it, only cost 8 euros as the factory was not in full production. On arrival we watched a video in English explaining the history of the factory and how everything was made and then went on to the sampling area where we... More

Staying at Perugia we did a reservation for a tour in the chocolate factory. Unfortunately our group was very large (so many people, kids and babies) and we could not enjoy as we would like. The factory was not running because it was the Easter weekend. What we strong recommend is the chocolate tasting. Although we were so many people... More

The factory is only in production 6 months of the year. High season September to February. It was closed today it would have been nice to have been informed as it is not the same walking along the skywalk with no action to watch. We saw empty production lines and machines. Tasting was good, shop well stocked. But sadly it... More

I like chocolate, but I'm not a connoisseur of chocolate. With that in mind this tour was just ok. We made a reservation in advance, but there was only 7 people on our tour so it probably was not necessary. The main line for Baci production was closed so our price was reduced to 7 euro per person. The tour... More

We did not pre-book, and there was not a tour available in English when we were in town, so we just showed up one morning. They were very nice, explaining there wasn't a tour available, but we could hang out with a tour about to start in Italian. I got in free because of my wheelchair. The tour includes watching...

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.

On our recent visit to Perugia, we took the kids for a visit to the Perugina factory - home to the famous Baci chocolates! It came highly recommended. The tour started off with a brief history of the Baci chocolate, followed by a demonstration on how to make chocolate at home! And then the guide took us to the chocolate... More

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
