The cultural tourism keeps pushing the incoming in Italy

Posted: 27 June 2018

The all over the world famous locations – from Rome to Venice, from Naples to Florence, from Milan to Turin- represent the driver of cultural tourism, which keep on growing.

But the whole sector registered positive performances: in 2017 Italian accommodation facilities had 122 million arrivals and over 427 million overnights, with an increase compared to 2016 of 4.5% and 6%, respectively.

Increases that are not just of these last years. The recent Bank of Italy data on the tourism balance of payments confirm that, also on long-term, from Seventies to today, the balance between income and expenses is positive and it has improved in the recent past.
