Cuba Shows a Complete Tourist Product in Italy

cuba italia turismoRome, Oct 11 (Prensa Latina) The annual presentation of the Cuban tourist product in Italian cities has reached today Perugia and Pesaro, the final stretch of a trip that included three other cities in central-south of the peninsula.
The delegation, made up of representatives from travel agencies, hotel chains, tour operators, airlines and cruise companies from both countries, previously visited Lecce, Bari and Ancona, as part of a tour that will conclude tomorrow with a 'Cuban Night event' in Rimini.

The conclusion of 'Showing Cuba in Your City' will coincide, as in previous years, with the opening ceremony of the 'TTG Incontri' International Tourism Fair, which will be held for three days in the well-known seaside resort of the Adriatic Sea in the presence of 3,000 exhibitors, 70,000 professional operators and 1,000 buyers from 85 countries.

Cuba is one of the tourist destinations preferred by the Italians, attracted by the richness of its historical, cultural and scenic heritage, together with the proverbial hospitality of its people.

More than 191,000 Italians chose the Caribbean nation for their vacations in 2016, a 39-percent increase compared to 2015, to which Italy was the number two source country of tourists to Cuba in Europe, after Germany, and fourth worldwide.

That figure exceeds 170,000 visitors this year, a 26.5-percent increase compared to the previous one, a trend that should be reinforced as of November 15 when all Cuban tourist facilities will be ready for the beginning of the high season.
