According to the Regional Tourism Committee, the number of foreign tourists on the French Riviera has increased significantly in the spring and summer of 2017.
Tourists are not afraid to return to Nice after the terrorist attack on the Promenade des Anglais in July 2016. This is evidenced by the data of the Regional Tourism Committee and the Union of Hotels of the Cote d'Azur. Organizations welcome the return of foreigners. This allowed "to overcome the tourist crisis" of the last year. In the spring and summer of 2017 the French Riviera was visited by more than 60% of foreign tourists. This is a great indicator if you take into account the events that took place in July 2016. True, compared with 2015, the number of travelers is still smaller.
"Between April and July, hotel and apartment reservations increased by 5%. Mostly, there are tourists from Russia and South America (20%), Germans, Swiss and Italians (15%), Chinese tourists (12%), Americans (6%) and French (4%). Only in July, the average occupancy of hotels and apartments came close to 80% "- said in the report of the Regional Tourism Committee. This indicator indicates a recovery of interest in the region. Hoteliers expect to "great tourist harvest" in September.
