The year 2013 appears to have undergone substantial stagnation as regards tourism in Tuscany, mainly due to two opposing dynamics. There has been an increase in the number of foreign visitors, while Italian tourists have decreased even more significantly. However, given that the major share of tourists are foreigners, on the whole the balance breaks even.
Once again, a comment on this tourist year must consider a two-sided situation. On the one hand, Tuscany seems perfectly capable of responding to international demand, and on the other hand, the even deeper economic and social consequences of the crisis are causing a huge slackening of internal tourism demand.
