It is said this is the best liquorice in the world and the Amarelli family are still going strong. Loved the Palazzo, which is the family home with the museum underneath. All excellently displayed and interesting. The factory is also interesting and the smell is amazing. A taste of the liquor or grappa would have been nice in the shop.... More

We recently toured Southern Italy and whilst staying in Rossano, our host at the Tenuta where we stayed recommended visiting the Amarelli factory and museum. Even though it was out of season and the weekend, a visit to the museum was arranged but unfortunately the factory was closed. Even still, it was possible to wander around and see some of... More

The owner of our B&B advised us about the local attractions and told us the Museum of Liquorice was a must see and we were not disappointed. A visit was set up for us and when we arrived there, a...

This will be one of the most fascinating and enjoyable 60 minutes you will spend in a 'factory/museum' visit. We were initially sceptical but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to this region

On the surface the history of licorice may have needed only a 20 minute tour, however, our tour guide, Angela, added insight and commentary throughout our walk through the museum. In the second and newer portion of the museum she pointed iout the balance the Amarelli family has taken over the 300 years between the original values and craftsmanship with... More
