“Must-see attraction in Rossano”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

My partner and I toured around Southern Italy for 2 weeks and we had a 2 night stop in Rossano. The owner of our B&B advised us about the local attractions and told us the Museum of Liquorice was a must see and we were not disappointed. A visit was set up for us and when we arrived there, a lady took us for a private tour around the museum. Unfortunately, being there on a Sunday, the factory itself was shut but the museum was very well made and extremely interesting. Great attraction for Rossano.

“You must NOT miss this”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

This will be one of the most fascinating and enjoyable 60 minutes you will spend in a 'factory/museum' visit. We were initially sceptical but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to this region

“Tour guide made the difference”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

On the surface the history of licorice may have needed only a 20 minute tour, however, our tour guide, Angela, added insight and commentary throughout our walk through the museum. In the second and newer portion of the museum she pointed iout the balance the Amarelli family has taken over the 300 years between the original values and craftsmanship with new technologies to continue to be a relevant and profitable company in Rossano, Calebria and Italy.
As a lover of licorice, I learned about the licorice plant and the process by which my favorite candy is made. It is worth a visit...ask for Angela as a tour guide and enjoy the ride.
