According to report published by the National Federation of Travel and Tourism Industry, Italy’s tourism sector and air traffic almost reached pre-pandemic levels in 2022 in comparison to the figures for 2021.

“In 2022 the overall tourism market in Italy returned close to pre-pandemic values, almost doubling foreign travellers compared to 2021, the restart has characterized all segments of the tourism industry to some extent: from travel agencies to tours operators, but the sectors that have recorded the greatest increases in demand are above all those linked to travel with a boom in cruise holidays and an encouraging recovery in air and rail traffic,” the statement notes.

Despite the current situation caused by the spread of the Coronavirus and its new variants and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Italy is among the European countries that experienced minor losses, the report states.

Last year, the tourism sector in Italy experienced a significant improvement, however, it still was subject to significant challenges.

According to the figures provided by the Italian Office for Statistics, there was an increase of 74.1 per cent in the number of overnight stays for January-August period last year as compared to the figures for 2021.

It was reported that last year, the majority of international tourists who visited Italy were from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands and Denmark, accounting for a total of 75 per cent of all foreign visitors.
