Although the current situation is still quite complex, lots of people are starting to think about summer vacations: thanks to the projections of the Tourism Economics Observatory of the Chambers of Commerce of Isnart and Unioncamere – according to which 80% of the Italians interviewed said they wanted to plan a holiday for 2021, as soon as it becomes possible – we learn the first news about the summer tourism sector in Sicily.
The first news comes from Palermo Falcone e Borsellino Airport, which in addition to having expanded its routes with the inauguration of the Palermo-Amsterdam one with EasyJet, announces that it has activated rapid and reliable “second generation” antigen-tests in order to make airport prevention measures faster and more effective.
Interesting news also come from important Sicilian cities with tourist attractions such as Taormina, which is preparing to become the reference point for the Sicilian summer 2021: consistent with the health emergency, the calendar of events of the Ancient Theater is already being planned, among which are confirmed the TaoBook and the Taormina Film Festival. On the other hand, the intention is to make the Castle of Monte Tauro accessible again securing the path and with a new public lighting system.
In addition to travel and places of interest, there also some news regarding the hospitality sector, which seem to suggest that the protagonists of the summer will be apartments, B&Bs and guest houses, which can represent a more flexible and last minute vacation that, inevitably, will be the most popular during the next hot season.
Sicily, thanks to its characteristics, cultural and natural beauties will probably be among the protagonists of the second most unusual and particular summer of the contemporary era, with the hope of being able to enjoy its characteristics in tranquility and safety.
