Tourists flock to Rome

Since the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation, Rome has seen an increase in tourist bookings. Many people want to witness the official departure of the current Pope live, as well as the election of the new Pope next April.

The flow of tourists to Rome depends in part on the Pope and his reputation. Today, people are ready to come from all over the world to witness this historic, extraordinary, out-of-the-ordinary event. Benedict XVI made his last public appearance on February 27, the day before his official retirement. He will retire to the Popes’ summer residence until his successor is elected.

In addition to this event, Rome is expecting a huge number of visitors for the Easter ceremonies on March 30 and 31, which will take place with a new Pope. Travel agencies are even offering “stays in Rome with the new Pope” for Italy.
