What will be the Trends for this #summer2021?

Sea or mountain? That’s the main question among the tourists that are going to live a new holiday experience and that are looking for new places to visit. Well, at least for this summer, we can tell you that there was no race: almost 82% of users preferred the sea to the mountains. This could be given by the fact that not everyone is so lucky to see the sea simply by walking around their city and the pandemic has rekindled in people the desire to enjoy a beach holiday. The places that have aroused more interest are without doubt the southern regions and the islands, in particular: Sicily, Sardinia and Puglia.
