newsletter_07-13_paris_newThe VILLE IMPERIALE brand was created in October 2011 by the town of Rueil-Malmaison and in partnership with the towns of Compiegne, Fontainebleau and Saint-Cloud. 
The brand’s aim is to unite all the towns that, through their history and their heritage, can justify strong links with the First and Second French Empires. So, with a firm commitment to the development of a real network throughout the whole of France, the VILLE IMPERIALE brand seeks to increase the historical and tourism visibility of member towns in the eyes of the general public and tourism professionals.
This site outlines the imperial heritage of each member town and offers suggestions for tours and visits across the network; the rich and diverse themes are always based on the imperial period of our history which was marked by two legendary figures: Napoleon I and Napoleon III.

Under the Groups heading, you will find a tourist offer specially designed for tourism professionals as well as all the practical information necessary to help you organise your visit.

For more information please contact:

Future of international tourist arrivals                                                                                    

image_world_transparent  In 2020, the number of international tourist arrivals worldwide is forecast to reach nearly 1.4bn and 1.8 by 2030.

I1980, international tourist arrivals to Europe totalled 177mn; in 2010 this number reached 475mn and is forecast to increase to 744mn by 2030. However, Europe’s market share of international tourist arrivals worldwide was 64% in 1980, 51% in 2010 and is forecast to decline to 41% by 2030. 

The largest source market for international tourist arrivals to European countries is Europe itself with a share of approximately 88% of international tourist arrivals. Non-European countries contribute only 12% of the market share.
