Italy Is The Country Of Saffron

Did you know that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world?
And that it is produced in ...Italy?
I ask you so because I did not know about it. I thought, it comes from India or other country from that part of the world. So if you come in Italy, in Abruzzo, Sardegna for example, you can see how the paesants cultivte this plant in special factories. It is interesting enough because the technique of the cultivation is manual till today and it's very interesting to see how the persons work.

It's a "new fashion" here: the possibility to have a vacation in a farm where you can eat the healty aliments produced in the same farm, partecipate on the life and works of the farm and on many interesting activities that often offer the owners. Many residents of the cities want to stay some time in a village, want to show their children the "natural" life and so these vacations are very popular. Except this, the farms have often their own restaurants where you can eat very special and interesting local dishes.

If you look for something like this in Italy you have to write "agritrismo" in your SE.
