Italy: number of tourist arrivals by country 2018 From January to June 2018, most international arrivals in Italy came from Switzerland. According to the research, about 6.2 million Swiss tourists visited the Boot over the considered period. Arrivals from France and Germany also recorded significant figures. Indeed, roughly 6 million tourists from each of these two countries traveled to Italy in 2018. On the other side, only 215 thousand Japanese visited Italy during the first six months of the year.

Tourism: an increasing profitable source for Italy

From 2012 to 2018, international tourists’ spending in Italy constantly increased. Whereas in 2012 incoming tourism generated approximately 33 billion euros, it was estimated that in 2018 it produced about 41 billion euros. Similarly, the total contribution of travel and tourism to the GDP in Italy also followed a positive tendency. Indeed, in 2012 inbound tourism’s contribution to the GDP amounted to 187 billion euros. Then, in 2017 this figure rose to about 36 billion euros.

The positive impact of tourism on employment in Italy

Tourism in Italy generated a positive impact on employment. Specifically, it produced more than 287 thousand jobs from 2012 to 2017. Moreover, a forecast for 2028 seems to confirm this increasing trend. If in 2012, tourism produced approximately 1.2 million job offers, it is predicted that by 2028 this sector will generate about 1.7 million job opportunities.
