When thinking of Italian chocolate, Perugina is the first word that usually comes to mind. Not too far from the center of the picturesque city of Perugia, the House of Chocolate is a perfect place to discover for chocolate lovers.

After that, you will watch an interesting video explaining how the processing techniques of cocoa has changed through time.
In particular, you will hear the story of the Bacio Perugina , the famous chocolate containing love messages and aphorisms by popular writers and poets. But it does not end here: you can taste a fresh made one!
