Number of arrivals in Paris and Rome - question about methodology

Dear Sir/Madam,
I understand that data are not directly comparable. Still, I would appreciate if you could provide more details of the methodology used to assess number of arrivals to Rome and Paris (annual figures). My problem is that I have some doubts about 8 million arrivals to Paris (while whole France attracts more than 70 million foreigners) and less than 4 million arrivals to Rome (while whole Italy attracts more than 40 million foreigners).
Other sources show considerably higher figures.

Thank you so much in advance
