Italy, the hotel system resists thanks to the foreign incoming

Even though it has been a "heavy" Summer touristically speaking for the Italian hotel industry, thanks to the crisis and above all the bad weather, the incoming still withholds. And it holds well. This has been revealed by a research carried out by Federalberghi, which through its own Centro Studi took a snapshot of the ongoing influx from abroad towards our Country. The numbers take into consideration all typologieis of travellers - leisure and business - and refer to the final balances of 2012 as far as overnight stays in Italian hotels are concerned.

Foreign tourists are 50% of the total guests of Italian hotels. Our main client is Germany, with 30.7 million presences, followed by the USA, United Kingdom and France. Foreign tourists do not distribute uniformly throughout all the regions. In first place sticks out Veneto, with 19.2 million of presences, followed by Lazio, the Province of Bolzano, Lombardy and Tuscany. Even though often surveys are cited that declare that France and Spain have touristically surpassed Italy, in reality if the presences in hotels are taken into consideration - instead of only arrivals - the ranking changes and we are in second place: 281 million in Spain, 256 million in Italy and France is in fourth place (202 million), overtaken even by Germany (250 million).

And Italy is back in first place if extra-European tourists are taken into consideration, with 44 million overnight stays booked in Italian hotels  in 2012 as against the 37 million in the United Kinddom, 33 million in Spain and 28 million in France.
