The National Institute of Statistics releases data on tourist flows and their features in 2017 from a supply and demand-side perspective.

In 2017, around 421 million nights were spent at tourist accommodation establishments (+4.4% compared with the previous year) and arrivals were equal to 123 million (+5.3%).

About 93.8 million of arrivals (+3.9% compared with 2016) and about 275 million of nights spent (+2.8%) were recorded in hotels and similar accommodation and the average length of stay was 2.93 nights.

In other collective accommodation establishments, the arrivals (29 million) increased by 10.2%, while the number of nights spent (145 million) increased by 7.5%, thus resulting in a reduction of the average length of stay (-0.12 nights).

Residents and non residents spent 210 million and 211 million nights (+3.2% and +5.6% respectively, compared with 2016).

In 2017, 40.6% of the total nights spent were concentrated in only 50 Italian municipalities. Rome is the main destination with 27 million of nights spent (6.4% of the total amount), followed by Milan (2.8%) and Venice (2.8%).
