LONDRA, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Secondo un sondaggio di Hotels.com la Grande Mela è la meta più amata al mondo per il divertimento notturno,
anche se gli Italiani preferiscono di gran lunga la movida di Barcellona
Chi non ha ancora deciso dove trascorrere il Capodanno ed è in cerca dei migliori divertimenti, dovrebbe sapere che, secondo un sondaggio condotto da Hotels.com, leader nella prenotazione di hotel online, New York è la città migliore per gli amanti della vita notturna. 27.000 viaggiatori in tutto il mondo hanno infatti incoronato la Grande Mela come città ideale per chi cerca divertimenti e locali notturni. Al secondo posto si trova Las Vegas, paradiso dei giocatori d'azzardo, mentre il terzo gradino del podio è stato conquistato da Londra.
Nonostante le prime due posizioni della classifica siano occupate da località statunitensi, secondo il sondaggio di Hotels.com ben sei città all'interno della top 10 appartengono al Vecchio Continente; insieme a Londra, sono infatti tra le più amate dai viaggiatori anche Parigi, Barcellona, Berlino, Amsterdam e Madrid. Bangkok, l'unica città asiatica in classifica, occupa la decima posizione.
Guardando le risposte dei nostri connazionali, invece,si scopre che gli Italiani hanno preferito la movida di Barcellona ai divertimenti notturni della Grande Mela. La città catalana e le sue famose Ramblas hanno infatti conquistato il favore degli Italiani amanti della vita notturna, che l'hanno eletta città migliore del mondo per divertimenti notturni davanti a New York. Al terzo posto fra le città preferite dagli Italiani per la nightlife si trova Milano: i tanti locali sulle rive del Naviglio o le discoteche di Corso Como hanno permesso al capoluogo lombardo di guadagnare la prima posizione tra le città italiane, seguita da Roma al quarto posto.
"New York e Las Vegas sono da sempre città che offrono straordinarie esperienze di viaggio. Ma è soprattutto la varietà dell'offerta europea a rendere le città del Vecchio Continente interessanti per i viaggiatori", commenta Alison Couper di Hotels.com. "L'Europa offre infatti molte esperienze differenti: dalle notti alternative nei club di Berlino, ai ristoranti e i coffee shop di Amsterdam, passando per i piccoli locali di Parigi dove ascoltare musica dal vivo."
