Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the motivations and the personality traits that characterize tourists whochoose religious travels versus cruises. Participating in the research were 683 Italian tourists (345 males and 338females, age range 18–63 years); 483 who went to a pilgrimage travel and 200 who chose a cruise ship in theMediterranean Sea. Both groups of tourists completed the Travel Motivation Scale and the Big FiveQuestionnaire. Results show that different motivations and personality traits characterize the different types oftourists and, further, that motivations for traveling are predicted by specific —some similar, other divergent—personality traits
