Took two times the tour and they were different and interesting. A lot of tasting was included. English tours are not organized often, so be prepared to join noisy Italian school children. The history of the company is well explained but to see a running...More

Staff is very nice and speak English. The exhibits in the museum seem to all be in Italian but they offer tours of the factory in English if you call in advance. We did find the location hard to find. There is a gate but...More

I enjoyed the tour. I have done other chocolate tours and thought this was the best at explaining the chocolate making process. I loved the 'eat as much as you want' chocolate tasting. (A cup of coffee would have made it even better!) This is...More

Tour was great fun and the sampling was open-ended. We actually had to stop ourselves. The plant was not operating that day, but it was still neat to see it. If you try to find it via GPS, the street address will likely lead you...More

This would have been a fantastic experience had the factory been in operation but sadly, once we were taken onto that area, all was quiet. My advice to you would be to go when they are in operation. I believe that is from July till...More

This factory tour was seriously disappointing. I was tempted to give it just one star, but I feel bad leaving negative reviews!! I'm not really sure how they could have made this tour more interesting--especially since the actual factory was shut down for one of...More

We enjoyed our time at the Perugina Factory. We were told when we arrived that the factory was closed that day for repairs, so instead, we had a demonstration by one of the chefs as to how they made the chocolates. This actually might have...More

Hi, We have a group coming to Rome with a day and one night trip to Florence. We'll be there a week starting June the 16th. How close to Rome or Florence is the factory? Are there tours or classes available? What is the cost?

Unless you have a particularly strong interest in chocolate production, I would skip this factory. It was the low point of my family's recent ten-day visit to Italy. If you decide to go, be sure to check that the actual... More
