Agrotourism in Venice

The idea of developing the agro-tourism (agriturismo) in Venice was born in the so-called "Holiday on the farm". Tourists spend their holidays on the land property with active agriculture, or where it was done before. The owners of the farms often take care of their guests themselves, so there is a much friendlier atmosphere than in a hotel. Depending on what the agro-tourism area is specializing, guests can help the owner at work or attend different courses. These opportunities will uncover some of the mysteries of the original production of Italian pasta or inaugurated salami, or learning how Court jams from the freshly harvested fruits are cooked.

Because of prevailing of organic farming in Italy they also have a wide range of agro-tourism farms in the Venice to the theme of this economical variant. Altaura Cà Vecchia for example, has two rustic properties with the accommodation for tourists, which are set to explain the principles of organic farming to the guests. Families, singles and groups are welcomed to learn how to do idyllic country life. The situation in Tenuta Castel Venezze is more luxurious. Together with the comfortably furnished rooms it also offers cooking classes at a highly specialized level. They offer courses for one, three or five days. However, such kind of fun is not meant to be cheap. And anyone who has ever attempted to go through the narrow alleys of the old town with its combined car, understands why the Italians use small cars or motor scooters...
