Over the past 20 years a new type of tourism has grown strongly throughout Italy,
Agritourism or Agriturismo as it is know in Italy.
This type of tourism is orientated around having a rural experience which you share
with the family who owns the farm of Agritourismo on which you are staying.
Generally, these properties are vineyards or orchards and you are able to enjoy the
fruits of the farm and in many cases your meals are prepared in traditional settings
and dishes by the family itself.
Agriturismo is an excellent option to the traditional types of accommodation and
gives you the opportunity to stay in working farmhouses, in which you can rent an
apartment and often buy the farm produce - or have it cooked for you!.
These are known as agriturismi (country tourism - or perhaps agrarian tourism - basically
a farm stay holiday) and are very popular. They also often now have swimming pools
and are great for families.
