The tour of the Perugina Chocolate Factory was a highlight of our trip to Perugia. Note: reservations are a must, especially for the English tour. It started off with w a 10 min video of the history of the company, then a tour of the museum, which was interesting and informative, and then on to factory tour during which we got to see them making Easter eggs still (size of small footballs). Unfortunately the rest of the factory was down for maintenance. The tour guide said the best time to visit is late October thru December when the factory is fully operational and then you will get to see all the Baci chocolates rolling off the production floor. The tour finished off in the gift show which had a wide assortment of chocolates to choose from.
There was a chocolate class going on while we were there, and I would have loved to have had a chance to join it.
Note: we took a cab from the city center and it costs about 25 euros each way, so it was a little expensive. However, a city bus does run past the factory, as an option. Ticket prices were reasonable at 7 euros.
