The majority of Italians (65%) choose to stay in Italy for their outdoor holidays, with a particular predilection for the Christmas and New Year period. Summer 2023 saw a significant recovery in tourism, with an average stay of 8 days, indicating a trend towards longer, nature-immersive stays.

There is a trend of greater investments in outdoor holidays, with an average expenditure that exceeds that of other forms of accommodation by approximately 22%. Outdoor holidays now represent a "new luxury", appreciated for the possibility of living experiences in complete freedom and contact with nature.

Camping and Outdoor

Camping, in particular, is highly appreciated, with one in four Italians considering it an optimal holiday option. The choice of outdoor holidays is no longer seen as a contingent necessity, but as a conscious decision appreciated for the quality of the experience offered.

Il 2024 marks a turning point in Italian tourism, with a clear preference for outdoor holidays that combine the desire for freedom with the connection with nature. This trend not only enriches the tourist offer but also promotes sustainable development of the sector.
