Being a member of the family business, Sara, the person conducting the tours in English is very passionate and extremely knowledgeable. The tour has hands-on activities for visitors to become involved in making shapes with the cheese. A very nice experience.

Worth a visit to see how local mozzarella cheese is made for local consumption, not exported as they say the cheese should be eaten within 5 days. The tour is short and you see how different shapes are made in the local family run business...More
