While the tour guide was informative and engaging, all of the displays are described in Italian. Given that many visitors are international tourists providing signage in other languages would be helpful. The tour of the factory is best made during the week when the factory is working.

Took the one hour tour of the factory. Unfortunately, in the summer the factory, which does not have air conditioning, is basically idle. If you plan to go here be sure the factory is operating.

I can't understand why people complain so much about this. I must say it was pleasurable. We booked a Combo tour with the red bus. First we spent an hour going through Perugia then an hour here. The museum was interesting, the factory viewing too. The hostess spoke good English. I agree that This could be more a more entertaining... More

I really wouldn't recommend this tour. There were close to 50 people on a tour that should only have had 10 - 15 visitors per guide. I really don't know how people bringing up the rear would have heard anything. It was low season and the factory wasn't in production. We saw a movie on the early history of the... More

Popped along to the Perugina chocolate factory and attended the tour run by the company. Fantastic guide who explained the chocolate making process, company history and then took us for a tasting of the chocolates made by the company and a tour through the factory from an elevated walkway. Highly recommended to see this in action. One note tho the... More

You can take this 1-hour factory tour (located way out of the central part of Perugia) for 4 euros, or leave at 2:05 every day by bus from the Rocco di Paolino (sp?) in downtown Perugia for 10 euros. (that will take a total of 2 hours, with travel time) The 1 hour tour is actually a half-hour tour, and... More

Interesting tour of the chocolate factory and museum. Really interesting talk about the people who created the chocolates and the history. Then you can eat as much chocolate as you like - it would be rude not to try them all and she which was the best!

We booked for the factory tour and paid when we arrived there. Be careful if you go by GPS, as we were sent to the old location of the factory, not the current. The scheduled tour was a little late in starting, but this was not a problem. The problem was that the factory was not in operation. There was... More
