WHAT IT IS ABOUT
A sweet discovery surrounded by nature!
The hardworking bees are fundamental actresses for the well-being of our planet and our ecosystem. As if that were not enough, they delight us with the sweet fruit of their hard work: honey. How is this substance that we all love produced? What are the procedures and why is it possible to obtain different types and flavours of honey?
These and other questions can be answered thanks to the knowledge and passion of Oreste, who will accompany you to discover the fascinating and mysterious world of bees. But that's not all, the bees produce two other precious products that our beekeeper will be able to show you and explain in more detail in his suggestive apiary.
The visit will take place in absolute safety with the appropriate protection thanks to the skills of your guide.
Joining the bees experience will be also an opportunity to taste two types of honey produced in the apiary, some local cheeses, and other snacks.
An experience for everyone!
