Rome tourism booming says Raggi (2)

Arrivals up 3% last year says mayor

(ANSA) - Rome, January 23 - Rome tourism is booming thanks to the city council's tourist office, Mayor Virginia Raggi said Tuesday.
    In 2017, she said, arrivals were 3% up at more than 14 and a half million and stays at de luxe hotels were 5%.
    She said that Rome, which had been capital of short-stay tourism, was now managing to "increase the days stayed on average".
    Raggi added that the city would introduce a tax on Airbnb.
    Some 3.5 euros a night will be levied per person for up to 10 days, she said.
