Although Italy was the top international travel destination in the 1970s, it is no longer the most popular tourist destination, ranking fifth in 2013. The country that was the most popular tourist destination in 2013 was France, followed by the United States, China and Spain. Italy’s decline in popularity as a tourist destination is thought to be the result of a lack of marketing, as well as a lack of the necessary public transportation system to allow tourists to travel easily around the country.
