Attacks by Islamist militants as well as strikes and floods have led to a big fall in tourism in Paris.

  • There were a million fewer visitors between January and June compared with the same period in 2015.
  • Paris welcomes 16 million visitors a year and is one of the world's top tourist destinations.
  • The drop is estimated to have cost about €750m (£644m) in lost revenue. One senior official described it as "an industrial disaster".
  • France relies heavily on tourism, which generates more than 7% of its annual GDP.
