ROME – Some 13 million Italians will be travelling over the June 2 Republic Day long weekend, hoteliers group Federalberghi said Friday.
Many Italians have taken Monday off so they can have a four-day break including the holiday on Tuesday.
Some 87.4% of travellers will stay in Italy, Federalberghi said.
The majority will go seaside destinations (44.5%), followed by art cities (21.3%) and the mountains (8.8%).
The 12.6% going abroad will mostly choose major European capitals and cruises, Federalberghi said.
Retail group Confcommercio confirmed the figures saying that nine million Italians had already booked their trips and a further 4.3 million may leave at the last minute.
