Coronavirus nightmare will have its impact on hotels and local tour agencies, which already lost half their turnover in November, December and January due to fear of high water.
During these months the hotels and local tor operators have seen their attendance cut in half, and rooms have been sold at bargain prices. Now, for the month of February, cancellations are coming due to fears of meeting Chinese tourists.
Venetians are now inviting a group of forty journalists from the most important newspapers and agencies around the world (the United States, Japan, France, Russia, Turkey) who should be coming in the next few days.
