Italy has a great potential in Travel & Tourism despite its actual rank

Italy has a great potential in Travel & Tourism despite its actual rank | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

Italy ranks 8th overall and 6th in Europe. Known for its picturesque towns, monuments and scenery as well as its numerous World Heritage sites (1st), the country’s strengths lie in its culture and history—it ranks high on digital demand for culture and entertainment (6th) and natural tourism (2nd). In addition, Italy offers visitors excellent tourism services facilities (3rd) and reliable health and hygiene (20th). Despite these strengths, and the fact that is the 5th most visited country worldwide, Italy has the potential to further develop the industry. The business environment (127th) hinders private investment for a number of reasons, including an inefficient legal framework, high taxation and regulations that disincentives FDI. Italy is also less price-competitive (133rd) than most other Mediterranean countries, including Spain (105th) and Greece (113th), and could further improve its infrastructure, branding and attention to the environment.
