Inbound visitor growth in Europe 2019-2023, by region

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit the tourism sector hard in 2020, as governments implemented stay-at-home measures to face the health crisis. As a result, the number of travelers worldwide decreased sharply in that year. In Southern/Mediterranean Europe, the number of inbound visitors was forecast to drop by roughly 72 percent in 2020 over the previous year.
