The B&Bs may be in the historic centres of Italy's art towns, or its villages, boutique or design residences, venerable villas or country houses, but they will all take part in the B&B Day event with enthusiasm to celebrate and spread the word of this more intimate style of accommodation with its family feel.

National B&B Day is a concept by www.bed-and-breakfast.it, the most important and best-known tourism site specializing in non-hotel hospitality, and it has become a red-letter day on the holiday calendar of Italian tourists: a chance not to be missed for making the acquaintance of Italy's beauty spots and an Italian welcome. B&Bs have turned out to be a winning choice for those who decide to open the doors of their homes to offer hospitality, but also for those who decide to stay in a B&B, enjoying the added value of a family welcome and affordable prices.

A B&B produces earnings, creates jobs for thousands of people, breathes life back into old urban centres, and is an alternative to classic hotel accommodation. This is why Italy has become the homeland of B&Bs, beating – in terms of numbers – other countries, and overtaking the traditional hotel offer.

The positive trend can also be attributed to Italian B&Bs which, over time, have significantly improved their standards while continuing to be excellent value for money, contributing extensively to the market share of this form of micro hospitality. B&Bs are spread across Italy and meet a specific, and very personal need for travellers.

What better occasion than B&B Day to try out Italian regional hospitality and celebrate with hosts this form of accommodation and its infinite options. Because diversification really is the cornerstone of Italian B&B success. To help you choose your B&B to celebrate B&B Day, the www.bed-and-breakfast.it site has classified its accommodation in various categories: boutique and design, venerable homes, historic centres, gardens and landscapes, city centres, confirming the specific traits and preferences of the B&Bs present in each category.

Organize a break for B&B Day 2018. Enjoy one FREE night in a B&B, tuck into the tasty breakfasts and discover a unique, personal and authentic side to hospitality.
