The paper aims to illustrate the main characteristics of the islands of the Gulf of Naples and the Aeolian Islands, which are among the most relevant for tourism, with strong seasonality, and reachable only by sea.
The work, in addition to describing tourism and maritime transport related to these destinations, tries to measure how many of the travellers who take ferries and hydrofoils are tourists spending nights in the official accommodation establishments and the consequent "tourist impact", through a purpose-built indicator "tourism of maritime transport" (arrivals in accommodation establishments divided by 1,000 disembarked passengers).
The analysed period is 2016-19, to have a more faithful picture of the pre-Covid situation, with some references to 2020.
Data mainly refer to the Istat surveys Capacity of accommodation establishments, Occupancy in accommodation establishments and Maritime transport.
