Of the numerous hotels who joined the project 10 are 4 and 5 stars. Venice, in fact, is preparing in a very professional way to host guests of Islamic faith. There are 17 hotels in Venice who will look into Muslim culture, with "study" seminars which will last about three months. After the diploma, the hotels will be equipped with carpets for prayer, arrows and compasses to indicate the direction of Mecca, personnel capable of answering to any other request related to the Muslim doctrine. 

To reach this objective, the Ava - the Venetian Hotelliers Associations - has reached an agreement with Halal Italia to obtain the certification of quality muslim hospitality”. Apart from the will to make sure to give the best hospitality, there are also the numbers: Venice registers a continuously growing flow of visitors from mainly Islamic Countries, in Italy often even for business matters. Only 2013, the arrivals in the Lagoon were 70,900 and the overnight stays 151.600. 

In these last months, finally, air routes have sensibly increased: since last 29th March Venice is connected by a direct flight Alitalia-Etihad to Abu Dhabi, which adds to the routes operated by Emirates to Dubai and by Qatar Airways to Doha.
