I've been introduced to the world of bees around 5 years ago by a local farmer living near my hometown, Rome. Since then, I felt in love with these incredible insects: I started with 2 beehives in the backyard of my house and after a year I decided to get more and more hives. In 2017 I decided to take an Apiculture class in order to improve my skills and my knowledge. Me and my partners are now…

What we’ll do

We will first have an appetizer to have a chat and to get to know each other. I will be together with my 2 partners as we run the hives together. Then we will have an hour or more of theory about bees and their world: you will understand their circle of life, their duties, how they reproduce themselves, which flowers and plants they do prefer, how bees and beekeepers produce honey, royal jelly,…

What else you should know

You will feel surprised how calm bees can be. Despite so, I would not recommend this experience to people strongly allergic to insect bites/stings. In summer it can be extremely hot around midday, that's why we will perform the course during the early morning.

What I’ll provide

Snacks and Appetizers
We will have an apetizer in the morning with local products . We will taste different honeys after the practice.
Safety equipment
Protective gears.

What to bring

Boots if possible.
Camera

Responsible interactions

All hosts must follow guidelines created with World Animal Protection.

Caring expert hosts

Learn from biologists, conservationists, farmers, and more.

Diverse animals

Meet over 300 kinds of animals, from alpacas to zebras.

Where you'll be

The experience will take place at the rural house where I live. The tasting will be outside in the garden, with a wonderful view over Orvieto, or indoor in case of bad weather. The apiary is located just in front of the house, 30 meters.
