Casa del Cioccolato Perugina - Perugina's House of Chocolate

Perugina's Baci - Yum!

I haven't been yet but on my list of Things to Do is a visit to Perugina's Casa del Cioccolato - home of the Baci.  I first discovered Baci when travelling to Italy on Lloyd Triestino's "Galileo Galilei" in 1976. My friend and I didn't bother about lunch but bought Bacis from the bar instead. They weren't very expensive, no doubt because they were duty free, but they were good!

 

At Casa del Cioccolato visitors will find one hundred years of history in the museum - from the discovery of cocoa to the people who made the company great; from pictures, to posters to packaging. The tour ends in the factory just above the production departments in a world of irresistible aromas... with a tasting of Perugina's chocolates to make it all truly memorable.

 

Perugina also has a Scuola del Cioccolato - Chocolate School - where you can learn to create delicious chocolates under the guidance of a "Maestro Cioccolatieri=.
