Main cruise ports in Italy: passenger traffic, embarking, disembarking and transit passengers

When considering the distribution of passenger traffic at cruise ports in Italy, it is worth making a difference among summer months, low season, and winter months. For instance, Olbia recorded the highest passenger traffic over the summer months of 2019. However, during the low season of the same year, Catania registered the highest figure. Finally, Palermo recorded a rather high distribution of passenger traffic over the winter period. Anyway, there are several factors that could be taken into consideration when analyzing the importance of cruise ports. For example, in 2019 Venice was the most important cruise port in Italy for passengers embarking and disembarking. On the other hand, in the same year Sorrento recorded the highest share of transit passengers (99.9 percent).
