The Eurostat Regional Yearbook 2017 has been published and reverals how regions of Spain, France and Italy remained the top tourism destinations in the EU in 2015.
What is more interesting for NECSTouR is the fact that the first 7 Regions in the ranking - Canary Islands, Île-de-France, Catalonia, Jadranska Hrvatska (even if only the Istrian County is a member of us), Balearic Islands, Veneto and Andalusia - are all members of NECSTouR.
Moreover, other 7 Regions - Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Tuscany, Valencian Community, Emilia-Romagna, Tirol, Occitanie and Lazio- are in the top-20.
Last year the NECSTouR Regions in the top-20 were 13. There is one Region more this year, since also Tirol joined the network.
This data confirm how NECSTouR is a network of Regions, fully engaged in the development of the quality of the Sustainability and Competitiveness of their Tourism.
However, also quantity matters, since all the most Touristic Regions are part of that network!
