Tourism in Italy

All roads lead to Rome. This is also true for tourists who choose to spend their holidays in this amazing city. Italy is the fifth largest tourist earner and the fifth most visited country in the world. Tourism in Italy is highly profitable and fast growing. Foreign investors who open a travel agency in Italy know that tourists will continue to come in great numbers in Italy for its rich art and history, its fashion, culture and cuisine.
Because Italy has so many diverse landscapes, ranging from beautiful coastline beaches to mountains and picturesque cities with ancient monuments, travel agencies in Italy can offer general touristic packages or specialized packages, according to the time of year and the region in which they operate. 

How to open a travel agency in Italy

The first step is to choose the appropriate business form. This choice can be based on the owner’s intentions to expand in the future.
