The factory in summer is very silent as the workload is very low and therefore you need some imagination to see it at full speed. In rainy day you should expect crowd to attend the visit and mainly tourist. If you are nearby it's worth but otherwise I would not spend my day visiting it

My son and his wife did the tour. Interesting information. I enjoyed purchasing chocolate from the store. Easy to find location.

I had read varying reviews but really wanted to see where the famous Baci was made. We booked by phone for an English tour and were delighted with the event. Our guide spoke good English and first we were shown a video on the history of the company, then went to the very interesting museum where things were explained &... More

The factory is around 20 min by bus from Perugia. It is a big place and the tour is well organized. One watches a film about the history of the factory. Then a hostess makes the tour in the gallery and invites for tasting. At the end, visitors are lead to a tour of the factory itself. Very interesting and... More

We spent about 1.5 hours on property for scheduled tour. Museum displays being only in Italian language limited our engagement. Plenty of samples provided as part of tour. Overhead walking tour of factory pretty simple with limited explanation.

We arrived at the factory only to be told it was closed, the receptionist was very rude and wouldn't explain why it wasnt open today, and we were very polite. Went across the road to McDonalds to get a baci mcflurry as that's as close as we could get.

This is a great tour of a chocolate factory that has been around for a very long time and even though it has been merged with Nestles it still maintains it originality and uniqueness for wonderful chocolate. The factory is extremely clean and well kept, the tour moved at a nice pace, and the tasting of several types of chocolate... More

Fnding the factory was not straight forward, the GPS got close and then we searched the GPS for Nestle and found it. The tour starts with a dated film and then a walk through some process and history pictorials. Next the chocolate tasting which was nice and then a limited tour around the packaging and processing factory from a single... More
