The Data Appeal Company releases the new Tourism Forecast Report on four major European cities: Barcelona, Berlin, Paris and Rome.

In 2022, Europe was a leading destination for international tourism with 585 million arrivals.

However, today factors such as economic concerns, the situation in Ukraine, and the spread of COVID-19 could affect future international travel plans.

Last year the Easter holiday marked a turning point for the tourism industry in many countries. Is Easter 2023 going to be the same?

To determine the likelihood of a full recovery from pre-pandemic tourism levels, The Data Appeal Company carried out a comprehensive forecast of Easter Tourism Trends in 4 of the major EU cities: Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, and Rome during the Easter Week.
