Italy is the most expensive holiday destination in Europe, according to a new analysis based on figures from Eurostat.

The research reveals hotel and restaurant prices are ten percent higher than the European average, which is damaging the tourist trade in Italy.

The cheapest destination is Montenegro which is 37 percent below the European average.

Croatia, Portugal and Turkey are all around a quarter less than the average.

Europe remains a highly desirable holiday destination with tourist numbers up by five percent last year.

Spain was the most visited country.
