Bed and Breakfast in Italy
Holidays in Bed and Breakfast in Italy
The Bed and Breakfast is an extra-hotel tourist activity in which the individual or the family who owns a house or some free rooms offers overnight stays and breakfast to tourists.
Teh B&B is a form of accommodation that originated in the 20s between the Irish and English families who decided to accommodate travellers and whoever needed it, for a fee, in the rooms left empty by the children who had decided to move to look for work elsewhere, in order to supplement your income.
First spread in the English-speaking countries, and arrived in Europe in the '60s, the formula of the B&B is now established internationally. The services offered have increased, as have the promotional channels, but the spirit, beyond the economic motivations, has remained the same: welcoming people from all over the home and offering them a warm welcome.
