Increase of five star hotels in Italy. Naples is the province boasting the largest number of luxury hotels

According to a survey conducted by Gruppo Uvet, a distribution hub of tourist services boasting a turnover of 1.918 billion euros, in Italy, over the past decade (2002-2011) the number of five star hotels has increased by 134% passing from 164 facilities in 2002 to 383 in 2011.

At the top of the ranking for provinces with the most five star hotels we find Naples with 32 hotels, thanks, above all, to the facilities located in the tourist resorts of Ischia (6), Capri (4) and Anacapri (3). Rome comes in second with 31 facilities, of which 29 are based in the capital alone and, third place is held by the province of Salerno with 20 luxury complexes prevalently located on the Amalfi Coast.  Florence follows in fourth place with 19 hotels, while Venice, Messina (thanks to Taormina and the Naxos Gardens) and Bolzano tie for fifth place with 17 facilities.  15 five star hotels are also present in the province of  Milan and in that of  Olbia-Tempio (especially on the Emerald Coast) and 11 in those of Padua and Brescia.

In terms of the regional ranking, Campania and Tuscany hold the number one position with as many as 53 luxury five star hotels each, followed by Veneto (41), Lazio (32), Lombardy (32), Sicily (31) and Puglia (27).

Conversely, as regards single cities, Rome (29) boast the largest number of luxury facilities, followed by Venice (15), Milan (14) and Florence (13). In addition to large art and industrial cities, several renowned seaside and spa resorts stand out, including, for example, Arzachena in the province of Olbia Tempio which boasts as many as 10 five star hotels; Abano Terme (Padua), Capri (Naples) and Fasano (Brindisi) with 6; Forte dei Marmi (Lucca) and Pula (Cagliari), each with 5 structures. Also of significant interest is the fact that, in 2002, Turin (thanks to the winter Olympics), Cervia and Syracuse did not have any five star hotels while, now, each one has 4.
