If you wish to spend a sweet day with the family, we suggest that you head towards San Sisto on the outskirts of Perugia and spend some time in the Perugina School of Chocolate. 

The Perugina School of Chocolate invites anyone wishing to gain the knowledge of the master chocolatiers and the secrets of  perfect chocolate, its processing techniques and its manual tempering, to come to chocolate school. The courses are, for example, “Choco-Cake Design”, “Create and Decorate your bonbon” “Score a goal”, “Lady kisses”, appropriate for both adults and children. The school has 12 workstations with all the necessary processing tools, each able to accommodate 2 people.

The classroom was used to film scenes for Lezioni di cioccolato, the comic movie by Claudio Cupellini with Violante Placido, Luca Argentero and Neri Marcorè (2007).

After having attended one of the school’s courses and tasted your sweet creations, you could visit the Perugina House of Chocolate made up of the Historical Museum of Chocolate and the Factory.

Within the museum an itinerary will lead you through the history of the company, the evolution of its precious chocolate, starting from the land producing it, to conclude with the wonderful treats made from it, including the Perugina Baci. The museum also presents  important evidence of a century of Italian business history; in fact, it houses the Buitoni Perugina Historical Archive, protected by the Cultural Heritage Agency.

After the visit to the Museum, you taste some of the best and most famous products made by Perugina and then visit the Factory producing Perugina Baci, Easter eggs, chocolate bars and many other well-known products.
