Which are the metropolises of the world that attract the greatest number of visitors and that manage to collect the most profits? Today we want to answer this question with the 2020 ranking of the most visited cities in the world.

But before discovering the most visited city, it is necessary to make some clarifications. In fact, it seems that there is no single global source to adhere to, as each nation tends to record tourist flows in a different way. That's why we analyzed both the data collected in Mastercard's "Global Destination City Index" and those collected in the "Top 100 City Destinations: 2019 Edition" by Euromonitor, a company specializing in consulting and market analysis. The two studies differ from each other in terms of counting, therefore they produce different rankings.



Top 20 of the most visited cities according to Mastercard

Mastercard's billing is based on the number of international visitors who have booked at least one night's stay in a given city. At the top we find Bangkok, Paris follows closely and London closes the podium.
It's Italy? The first destination in the Bel Paese is Milan, capable of beating beloved cities like Rome and Venice. The Lombard capital is ranked in sixteenth place.

NB: The ranking is extracted from the most recent dossier available online, based on data collected in 2018.


Top 20 of the most visited cities according to Euromonitor

Euromonitor takes into account the "flow of arrivals", i.e. the number of people who have visited a city in another country for at least 24 hours, for a period not exceeding 12 months, and who have stayed in paid or unpaid accommodation, collective or private. Therefore the Euromonitor ranking varies in different positions compared to the previous one.
In the first position is Hong Kong, followed by Bangkok and London, the latter is one of the very few cities that maintain the same position in both rankings. The first Italian city is instead Rome, which wins the sixteenth position.
