Published on : Tuesday, January 9, 2018

indexThe Louvre Museum said that it welcomed 8.1 million visitors in 2017, which is an increase of 10 percent from the year before. It is surely a sign of tourism revival in Paris after the terror attacks and its aftermath.

 

Tourism in the French capital took a hit in 2016 after a series of attacks by Islamic extremists. Foreign visitors represent 70 percent of the museum attendance according to officials of the world-acclaimed museum.

 

The visitors mainly come from the United States (1.2 million visitors, up by 25 percent) and from China (700,000 visitors, up by 9 percent). The Louvre is the world’s most-visited museum.

 

Although the exact figures of tourist numbers in Paris have not been released yet for the last year, but an increase of 10 to 12 percent is expected, according to the Paris tourist office, based on hotel reservations.
