Only 51 percent of people say they have travel plans this year. And 92.3 percent say they'll be staying in Italy – the highest proportion in at least a decade.
However, only 5.5 percent of respondents had actually booked a holiday for 2020.
Of those who say they aren't planning on a holiday this year, 25 percent said they were afraid and 16 percent couldn't afford it, the survey said.
Among those struggling the most financially were the self-employed, factory workers, and the unemployed, the survey showed.
A separate survey released by Coldiretti/Ixe had similar findings.
