Agritourism

agriturismo

This term refers to the many types of Farm holidays which have developed in Italy over the last decade.

The idea behind 'agriturismo' is to encourage farm owners to renovate traditional buildings creating new opportunities for tourism. Families are thus encouraged to remain in the countryside and many old buildings, which otherwise would have fallen in ruin, have been restored to their former beauty.

Staying in an 'agritursmo' allows visitors to avoid the main tourist trails and immerse themselves in the Italian way of life while still being able to visit all the most important naturalistic and historic sites of the area.
