About Agri-tourism

Nowadays, an agriturismo is a place where one can choose to enjoy a wide variety of activities: from sleeping to eating, from learning to practising sport, from experiencing nature to just relaxing.

The agriturismo has been recognised as a form of accommodation since the mid-1980s, identifying a very simple form of hospitality organised by farmers who would set up lodgings in farm buildings made available by the quick downsizing of agricultural employment.

Over time, this activity has evolved, offering comfort and services in line with the needs of modern tourism, while remaining faithful to the initial spirit and consistent with the connection to agricultural activity.

The agriturismo is a place where multiple services are provided.

The farmer welcomes guests to their farm, offers them accommodation in rooms, flats or a camping site; offers them wine and food tastings as well as meals prepared mainly with products from their farm or other farms in the area (PDO, PGI and typical traditional products); and a wide range of recreational, cultural, educational and sporting activities.

In some cases the farmer may offer hospitality and meals, to a very limited number of guests, in their own home through a particular form of agri-tourism called 'rural family hospitality'.

Agri-tourism is a sector that continues to thrive due to the way it responds to the tourist's demand for safe, quiet places in contact with nature, but also for the wide range of services it offers. In addition to this, operators in the sector are becoming increasingly professional and able to respond to the requests of a much more demanding clientele that is attentive to the quality of the services being provided.

Agri-tourism is a tool and an opportunity to bring the city closer to the countryside through the contact with nature and the rediscovery of traditions.

Agri-tourism in Emilia-Romagna is mainly about experiencing the rich tradition of food and wine, natural beauty and historical and cultural heritage.

In the Agriturismo, a simple holiday becomes a life experience, through encounters with people, places, and a lifestyle that has now been forgotten.
