Knowing the expectations and preferences of a target market is a fundamental element to define a successful territorial marketing strategy for any tourist destination.
What do tourists think about a destination in general? Does it differ between domestic and international markets? What’s the overall sentiment of hotels and restaurants? What are the most popular attractions and most discussed topics in online reviews?
