These are the reasons why, as of November 2022, a total of 525 agritourism facilities – 510 were in 2019 and 498 in 2018 – hosting 368,000 guests were registered in Trentino in 2021. The most staggering figure is the number of agritourists in Trentino in January-September 2022: more than 404,000. Furthermore, there are 150 registered educational farms and 374 agritourism facilities that provide overnight stays, with a total of 5100 available beds.
Currently, the legal framework in force is the Provincial Law Number 1 of October 30, 2019 (Regulation of agritourism and amendments to the Provincial Law on Agritourism of 2001 and the Provincial Law on Business Incentives of 1999) and its Implementing Regulations, which legislate the sector. The major changes concerned the maximum thresholds of agritourism activity and the opening time.
The framework aims to uniform and coordinate activities in order to achieve increasing synergies between guest and host family: a conscious choice to experience an “alternative vacation” on the territory, for the territory.
