Fun fact filled tour of one of Europe's oldest chocolate manufactures.

We stopped in without a reservation or checking tour hours. Fortunately, a tour was just starting as we arrived. Although the whole tour was in Italian (we understand and speak... read more

After booking my group for a visit and tour of the facility, they decided to close for inventory purposes. I really think they could have honored their booking and not disappointed 28 people. Will never try it again.

We stopped in without a reservation or checking tour hours. Fortunately, a tour was just starting as we arrived. Although the whole tour was in Italian (we understand and speak a bit) it was very informative. The docent was very well informed and presented the tour well, she was also fluent in English and could answer any questions we couldn't... More

I went there in November with my family.It is a big factory and nothing is touched by hand.We tasted some of the chocolates and the black wrapper is like you are in heaven,never tasted it before. The guide Francesa Marini was good she explained very well.If you are in Perugia go and watch the BACI how is made. Thanks.

We did this tour combined with the Perugia Town Tour. Not a bad deal for 20 euro. They have 1 chocolate tour a day so we opted to do that first. It's about a 15 minute drive to the factory. We only had 1 other couple with us, so it was almost like a private tour of the factory. It's... More

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

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
