All three are good, and correct. I would say 'is getting' instead of 'is having'. Place periods at the end of sentences.

The first one seems to me to convey a change in the way Rome caters for tourists more than a change in the number of tourists. The second one feels like the wrong verb, although I can't say precisely what's wrong about it: it doesn't feel as wrong in the third one. I would prefer "receiving". The third one needs a space in "every day".
