For instance, if on the Italian coast of Jesolo, a night at the hotel plus European breakfast is between €60-70 and for those who prefer a whole week of vacations just renting an apartment is €600-700, on the other side of the Adriatic Sea, is half the price for an all-inclusive package. This is the reason, why many tourists (not only German) have chosen the Balkans region and other Mediterranean countries for their summer holidays, besides Albania, Greece, Croatia, Tunisia, Egypt, too, etc. putting Italy for the first time behind this summer season.
