Moving around in Italy - transportation
The government of Italy pays much attention to the country’s road network. Subsequently, the road surface is considered one of the best in the world. However, it is worth remembering that most autobahns in Italy are on a paid basis. The road network covers all parts of the country, even the most remote corners. The total length of highways is more than seven thousand kilometers. Along the roads you will come across hotels, snack bars and cafes, shops, service stations, and filling stations. We can therefore safely say that Italy has created the safest and most comfortable conditions for traveling by car. Buses are considered the most common type of public transportation. There are both intra-city and interurban trips. The quality of the vehicles varies considerably depending on the place of its use. Thus, in the big cities run modern luxury buses, and in small rural areas one can still meet old and dilapidated buses from the previous century.
Economy roadmap of Italy
According to data for 2016, the olive production in Italy reached record levels, which allowed it to take a leading position in the corresponding rating. Thanks to its favorable location, since ancient times Italy has been actively using all the gifts of the Mediterranean. The Republic is among the top ten countries in the world for catching fish and other seafood, as well as for processing and exporting them, both in the form of fresh carcasses and in the canned form. The state pays special attention to the development of the tourism sector. Italy for several years in a row, occupies a leading position in the ranking of the most visited countries in the world. Last year, more than 60 million people came to the country for vacation. However, according to statistics, a serious economic crisis contributed to the reduction of the tourist inflow and to date only 12% of the Gross National Product comes from the tourism industry. Earlier these indicators reached up to 19%.
