An important industrial and economic centre of Italy, Turin relies on exports, especially automotive, machinery, mechanical equipment and electric products. Among Italian agglomerations, Turin is one of the most sensitive to changes in the economic environment.
Hotel activity strongly depends on economic activity, as leisure tourism is less important in Turin compared to other major Italian cities despite the presence of industrial tourism sites and the city’s proximity to the Alps.
On the long term, the Turin-Lyon high-speed railway should improve the city’s appeal and its position as an economic and transportation hub. At the moment, the railway station of Turin Porta Nuova is the third biggest Italian station with 70 million passengers each year. Porta Susa station will undergo renovations before the completion of the Turin-Lyon high-speed railway (Turin is already integrated in the high-speed railway network of Italy).
Hotel chain supply strongly decreased by 8.4% to reach 2,767 rooms as of January 1, 2017 (-255 compared to January 2016).
