Do native speakers use the word "touristic"?


Do native speakers use the word "touristic"?
I īm wondering if it is correct to introduce to students the word "touristic" as a word which is commonly used by native speakers or a word which is considered as EuroEnglish.

"Touristic" is certainly not used in American English to my knowledge. "Touristy," perhaps, but I īve never heard "touristic" before.

I have not heard this word before -it exist in Greek "touristikos" but the correct translation in English is e.g tourist attraction...

I īve heard the word (mostly in non-English speaking countries I believe), but I īve never used it. I īm not even sure what they are trying to imply by that word.
I think the word you are looking for is tourism.
