During visits to the apiary, you will have the opportunity to meet producers from the region, savour the uniqueness of their brands and local products. Experienced staff will accompany you on an unforgettable journey through emotions and new flavours.
Honey is certainly one of the oldest and most versatile products in the world. During this guided tour, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the world of apiculture, learning directly from an expert apiculturist who will tell you in confidence what it means to manage an apiary, revealing the tricks and challenges of this interesting activity.
You will have the opportunity to take part in ancient and traditional apicultural techniques, such as lighting smoke to calm the bees, and the extraction of the apiary frames, which the apiarist will then pass on to the participants who will be able to examine them closely. Before heading to the apiary, participants will be dressed in beekeeper's overalls, which is essential for the experience. After visiting the apiary, participants will have the opportunity to taste different varieties of local honey, appreciating the colours, scents and different textures of each honey.
