Advert Travel Gazette

Tourism is on the rise in France after two years of deadly terrorist attacks that hurt one of the country’s major economic motors, reports France 24.

The last three months of 2016 saw tourism in France rebound by nearly 4 percent, after a dramatic downturn last year that put the country’s hospitality industry on alert, according to the INSEE national statistics agency.

The number of overnight stays among French nationals rose 4.3 percent in the third quarter of 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015, while stays among foreign visitors increased by 2.9 percent.
