Abstract

The agritourism represents a new source of tourism and is linked not only to the rural world, but mainly to agriculture. The last three decades have multiplied operating facilities abroad, in countries such as the UK, France, the Netherlands and Germany, but also Austria. Italy, compared with these countries, is a young territory from the point of view of rural tourism, but the development of recent years has been uneven. The agritourism was established as a response to the crisis in the agricultural sector, which is why one of the factors necessary for the opening is, the possession of an agricultural activity. The structure is therefore not an independent activity, but an integral part of agricultural activity, with the aim of enhancing not only the agricultural fund but also the products drawn from them. The aim of the research and analysis which was carried out, is to identify the main features of the agritourism and its fast development in Italy. Therefore, we propose to analyse not only from a touristic point of view, but also statistical, the agritourist supply and demand for this type of tourism in a country with a thousand possibilities from the point of view of tourism. This paper presents the results of the analysis of the Italian agritouristic structure. In order to realize I used the available data in the various websites such as ISTAT, EUROSTAT, of the different associations and even some interviews and a questionnaire.
