After the year 2018, in which investments for approximately €718 million were recorded, the first half of 2019 recorded over €2 billion in investments (43.4% of the volume invested), a sharp increase over the same period in 2018.

Mention goes to an important transaction in the hotel segment during this half-year, comprising a portfolio of 8 assets, with a predominance of international capital (91%) compared to domestic capital (8%).

Venice, Florence and Rome were the most attractive cities in the first six months of 2019, with high-end hotels recording the greatest interest.

Hotel facilities recorded a +1.6% change in terms of overnight stays in 2018 and +3.2% in arrivals compared to 2017, confirming the growth trend that began in 2014. Italy’s appeal also emerges from the breakdown in overnight stays, with 50% of the total 279 million originating from foreign countries.
