Coronavirus in Summer 2020

Already in the summer months of 2020, Southern Italy witnessed a surge in arrivals of travellers from other European countries, as well as many Italians who chose to spend their summers holidays in Italy and enjoy the beauty located closer to home.

September and early October saw a significant number of tourist arrivals from Northern European countries such as (Sweden and Germany) and the United Kingdom, who traveled to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast taking advantage of the opening of flights and last minute travel offers. Unfortunately, with the start of the second wave of COVID-19 and the subsequent limitations on European flights, we have again witnessed a massive cancellation of bookings and low interest in travel.

How will the Vaccine Impact Travel?

Italy is among the most sought-after and desired Mediterranean destinations among next year’s travel destinations and trends, with destinations such as Sorrento, Capri and Amalfi Coast expecting to recover as early as 2021. The proximity destination will always play a primary role in the choice of travel, both nationally and internationally.

In regards to the rest of Italy, the structures that have successfully equipped themselves for the changes in recent months, both in terms of supply and initiatives aimed at sanitation, will succeed. New concepts to adapt to the new lifestyle needs of travellers could include, new spaces redesigned for smart working, areas used for services for psycho-physical relaxation or for the gym, wellness services and sport activities.

As for international travelers, immediately after the vaccination campaigns, an increase in tourists from European Union countries – primarily British and German – is expected to choose short-range tourist destinations to visit by the Summer of 2021. However, with an increasingly stable return to pre-covid parameters, a constant recovery of international travelers from the United States and Australia is also expected, more likely from 2022.
