A similar scenario was also found in the list of the most visited museums in Italy in 2019.

The Uffizi Galleries in Florence, Tuscany, and the archaeological site of Pompeii in Campania followed in the list.

Museum visitors in Italy increased, but…

Overall, the number of visitors to museums in Italy increased significantly from 2008 to 2019. However, museums seemed not particularly appealing to Italian individuals aged 35 and older. For instance, approximately 70 percent of Italian individuals aged between 35 and 44 did not visit any museums and exhibitions in Italy in 2018.
