Perugina House of Chocolate (Chocolate Factory and Museum) Tour

Are you looking for family-friendly activities in Umbria, Italy? For something fun to do on a weekend, be sure to book a Perugina Chocolate Factory Tour.For Valentine’s weekend, Casa Granada went to the House of Chocolates (La Casa del Cioccolato) in Perugia, Italy. It is only a few kilometers away from the Perugia City Center. We went there on a Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. We had a lovely experience and I highly recommend it.

The Perugina Chocolate Museum

First, we watched a short video explaining how the world-famous Baci Chocolate was made. (By the way, “Baci” is Italian for “kisses”.) Then, we went to the Historical Museum. The kids were so excited to see the giant Baci chocolate. It is the replica of the giant 13.156 pound Baci kiss. The Umbrians called it the “Bacione” (giant kiss). It holds the Guinness World Record for the largest chocolate ever made!

The Chocolate Factory

After the museum guided tour, we proceeded to the chocolate factory. We saw the factory behind some plexiglass via a suspended walkway. Pictures were not allowed inside the factory. At that time, there were no workers making chocolates. But we were able to see the machinery for making chocolate.

Chocolate Tasting Station

At the end of the tour, we helped ourselves to different varieties of chocolate. We recommend bringing a box or container. You would want to bring home some delicious chocolates to enjoy later. My favorite was the classic Baci kiss wrapped in silver packaging.

Finally, we bought some souvenirs at the gift shop. My two boys brought home Baci cars in silver and blue. The shop offers discounted prices for many of its chocolate and candy products. Be sure to bring home some Baci Chocolate gifts for your family and friends!

  18. As a major chocoholic, I DEFINITELY need to make a trip to the Perugina House of Chocolate! I wonder if that Bacione real chocolate?! Thank you for joining #DolceVitaBloggers <3

    1. You definitely should! The giant Bacione is actually just a replica. The real one was carved away and given to the people who were at the festival. Pretty cool right?
