16% fewer Italians went on holiday last year

 Rome, February 13 - Some 16% fewer Italians went on holiday in 2011 than in 2010, a survey said Monday. 23.5 mln had to stay home because of economic crunch.

"Going on holiday, compared to 2010, was tougher because of the continuation of the global economic and financial crisis," said the report from the National Tourism Observatory.

The survey said almost 27 million Italians went on holiday and 23.5 million didn't.(ANSA)
