Tourism in Veneto Region: Italians return to Verona on 2017

Verona and Veneto Region see an high presence of tourists. This is shown by the estimates of the first half of 2017 recently spread by Veneto Region. The report was presented by Federico Caner, Regional Councilor for Tourism and Promotional Affairs, who highlighted the good prospects for the current year. In fact, in spite of 2016 was the record year with 17,856,567 of arrivals (+ 3.5% compared to 2015) for a total of 65,329,328 of presences (+ 3.4% compared to 2015), the latest estimates made by the Bureau of Statistics of Veneto Region reveals that 2017 is on the right track to overcome it. In fact, the results are really encouraging with nearly 18 million of arrivals for a total of over 65.4 million of presences.
In the first months of 2017, Verona has a brilliant performance with 4.5 million of arrivals and 16.5 million of presences. It is worth noting the increase of visits to all the museums and monumental sites of the city. There is the special case of the Arena Amphitheater which, even after the price increase of the ticket - from 6 to 10 euros - with an alignment to the costs of the major European sites, has a steady growth, touching the 812,942 visits.
Verona attracts tourism not only as a city of art rich of history and events, but also because of its proximity to Garda Lake, which captures the record with 2.7 million of arrivals and 12.9 million of presences, proving that the tourists love the lakeside holidays and try to stop longer.
Overall, the Germans are the most present tourists in Veneto Region. Also this year, Germany wins gold medal with over 4.8 million of presences (+ 12.9% compared to 2016) at hotels and campsites, an ever-growing increase.
International tourism shows greater consensus for Veneto Region, but the good news is the return of compatriots to Veneto Region with + 9% of arrivals and + 7.2% of presences.
Most of our compatriots visit the seaside resorts (+ 13%), the art cities (+ 7.7%) and the lake places (+ 6.4%). A good wish, that of the increase of Italian clientele: a signal of recovery of the economy and progressive exit from the crisis that tolls our Country.
