Factors affecting tourists’ length of stay in Rome

Abstract [en]

This thesis documents the design and result of a study on tourists’ length of stay in

Rome, as a function of age, season and several other factors. Two models are tested. An OLS

model is developed to examine relation between number of nights stayed in Rome and 15

factors. A binary logit model is developed and estimated to examine the assumed relationship

between the probability of staying longer than one week and the same 15 factors. Survey data

of Rome visitors collected by the Pragma and Doxa consulting firms are used in the analysis.

The results indicate that travelling by car and remote travel are important for staying longer

in Rome. Moreover, season, employment status, whether repeated visit, shopping

opportunities, good tourist information, package holiday and type of accommodation also

play a role for length of stay.
