Nice visit to the chocolate factory. The trip included the history of making chocolate and building of the factory. My children loved the chocolate testing session.

The concept of the visit is a mix between the Italian chocolate tradition and the modernity of the current factory production processes: interesting & tasty :-)

The Perugina chocolate factory in San Sisto near Perugia is well worth a visit for chocolate-lovers young and old. MAKE A RESERVATION first as it gets very busy - at least when we were there in August ... we turned up and had to make a reservation for another day. Also be aware that there is a charge for entry...

You will learn the history and the procedures of the largest Italian sweet factory... not the reason who allows a small shop to change the way Italians (and humans) buy sweets and chocolate...

Even if you are not particularly interested in factories this is a great place to visit. The business may now be owned by a multi-national but the spirit of its origin as a local business is still evident, and the quirky story of its founding worth hearing. The tour starts with an introduction to how chocolate is made and history... More

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.
