Chocolate Gourmet Tour

Car Service in Perugia (Umbria) with private English speaking chauffeur for a lovely tour.

Do you think that Willy Wonka doesn't really exist? That the Chocolate Factory is just a dream? Think again, because Perugia, other than being a city rich in history and culture, is also a city famous throughout the world for being one of the world's capitals for chocolate. This tour offers a visit to the Perugina factory, a very well known company, which for over a century has produced chocolates, sweets and confectionary products in general (including the very famous Baci), where you have the chance to discover the production methods and above all, taste the freshness of the delights which have just been produced. Starting with the company museum, which traces the history of Perugina and its most famous products, you will pass by the production areas, where, accompanied by company staff, you can follow the steps and methods used in the manufacture of chocolate, ending with a visit to the tasting room, where you can finally taste the freshness of freshly made chocolates. For those with a sweet tooth, there is also the possibility to end with a specific short cooking lesson, where, accompanied by a master chocolatier, you can make small works of art with a unique taste and live an unforgettable experience.

FOCUS ON

Perugina: Born in 1907 as a workshop specialised in the production of sugared almonds, but a little later Luisa Spagnoli, wife of one of the partners of the company, had a brilliant idea, representing a turning point for the company: the invention of Baci Perugina. They are chocolates made with chopped hazelnuts, left over from other products, topped with a whole hazelnut, covered with plain chocolate and wrapped with paper, in which you can read short aphorisms of love. It was an extraordinary success, not only at a national level, but repeated by a series of other products which had the merit of changing the idea of chocolate, from being a simple gift to a product for mass consumption. Today it is partner to Nestlé, and remains an excellence in the world of chocolate.
