Family visit of two adults and one child. The tour was just the right length to keep us all interested with good variation in activities. We started with a short film, a museum tour, a tasting session and a factory tour. It really was interesting and lots to sample! I would advise getting really clear directions as this is off...

My two daughters and I participated in a full day chocolate making course. This day was the high light of our stay in Italy.

My husband and I did the chocolate tour. I actually visited Perugia because of this chocolate factory, so I had high hopes. They were not at all disappointed! Would highly recommend. For only 9 euro each, it was well worth it. The English guide was extremely helpful and kind. The chocolate tasting was extremely generous! as a chocolate lover, this... More

My husband and I felt a bit like 2 kids in a candy store. All the shelves had displays of splendid chocolates of all kinds of flavors. The best one and the most famous is: "Baci", which means a kiss in Italian. The even had a special addition of a white chocolate "Baci". The prices are just like the ones... More

We drove to San Sisto, a town outside of Perugia to tour the Nestle Perugina Factory – the home of Baci chocolates and other delicious pastries and chocolates. What a fun afternoon we had! We took a chance that there would be a tour, and that we could go on tour without a reservation. We were so lucky, as when... More

It is an interesting tour, but unless you are very interested, it is probably better to tour some of the old cities and churches in the area.

There is a small museum and shop in the factory. For a tour it is much better to book as I have found myself tagged on to a school group which is not the best. It depends on the time of year just what is being produced at the factory. On my last visit they were only producing cocoa, previously... More

This is a perfect way to spend the afternoon making chocolate and the best part bringing it home! The instructor was very informative and funny making the class very interesting. I highly suggest you take the tour and/or the chocolate making class.

The poster ad for this place shows a chef making chocolate by hand with traditional equipment. It is in fact the Nestlé factory situated on an industrial estate. The tour takes you through the factory where you watch the chocolate bars being packed. The 'chocolate buffet' that is included in the ticket price is in fact a few broken bars... More

A fun tour. The sampling was wonderful. We didn't book - I advise to book so you can get a tour with an English speaking guide.
