This pattern can be observed for nights spent by both residents and non-residents. In 2014, France (403 million nights, -1.2% compared with 2013) and Spain (401 mn, +3.1%) continued to be the top 2 Member States in terms of tourism nights, followed by Italy (370 mn, -1.8%) and Germany (366 mn, +2.9%).
