The famous chocolate shop in Modica

Tour and tasting in the famous Chocolate Shop in Modica

The natural stone of the vault and the walls, the works of art on the ceiling evoking the light flight of swallows, the plants, the wood, the music in the background and the warm and delicate lights turn this place into the Sabadì Temple of Taste and Beauty. Friendly and prepared staff will guide guests into the tasting and knowledge of chocolate, from the story of its historical origins to the careful selection of raw materials, up to its processing thanks to which Sabadì has been the best Modica Chocolate for 9 consecutive years. In the Shop you can find all the chocolate ranges, candies, nougats and Bibite Madre. The experience lasts from 20 minutes to about 50 minutes, depending on the needs of guests and guides. Italian, English and French. The Sabadì Shop is also present in Piazza Duomo in Ortygia, Syracuse, where we offer the exclusive Syracuse Chocolate!
