(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 27 – There will be at least 9 million – not counting day hikers – the Italians traveling for June 2, the first real “bridge” of spring, since it falls on Thursday. It emerges from the survey at the end of May by the Confcommercio-Swg Observatory according to which, however, there is a good margin for further improvement, given that another 4.3 million do not exclude taking a few days off.
If the Easter “script” is repeated, when, in the last few days, almost all the uncertain ones had opted for the departure, we would have more than 13 million travelers: a positive result and in line with the propensity, which has been registered for some time , to overcome the many uncertainties of the moment, returning on vacation.
With an average duration of 3 days, the trips will be in Italy in 95% of cases, half of them outside their own region, spending almost 460 euros each. For dinners, lunches and aperitifs during the holiday, Fipe-Confcommercio calculates a total expenditure forecast ranging from 860 million euros to 1.3 billion euros, confirming catering as an important component of the tourist offer.
We then go back to real holidays, choosing mainly a tourist accommodation facility and, only in 3 out of 10 cases, a second home or guests of relatives or friends.
The favorite destinations are the sea, in 37% of travel intentions, but followed by cities, villages and places of art, indicated by the interviewees between 13% and 14%, with young people up to 35 who prefer a large city and the 55-74 band which instead opts more for villages and contexts more on a human scale.
