Always considering the first five months of the year, it is the average stay also increased in the almost 700 accommodation facilities of the municipal area, where there are more than 12,000 beds available.

“We are faced with extraordinary numbers – emphasize Stefania Proietti and Fabrizio Leggio, mayor and tourism advisor – which confirm that Assisi is the engine and the heart of Umbria’s tourist stream. If in 2022 our city recorded over 1.2 million visitors, the trend for the first five months of 2023 bodes even better. The data rewards the abundant commitment and significant investments made, in recent times, for the tourism promotion of the city, not only in Italy but also abroad. We believe that the figures recorded in the first five months of the year are destined to increase during the summer, also thanks to an extensive promotional strategy and the offer of a rich program of events, which propose Assisi not only as a city of art and spirituality, but also as an ideal destination for longer vacation periods, surrounded by beauty, culture, nature and fun. In this context, more and more famous people choose our city for their holidays or for important moments in their lives. Like, for example, the singer Annalisa who decided to get married here, the actor Claudio Santamaria who visits with his family, the captain of the Italian men’s volleyball team, Simone Giannelli, who announced on social media that he chose Assisi to do a . of his dreams come true, buying a farmhouse or like Hollywood stars Caylee Cowan and Casey Affleck who spent a few days relaxing in Assisi, even declaring it the most beautiful place he’s ever seen.”
