By Nicola Bellini, Cecilia Pasquinelli

This e-book seriously explores the interconnections among tourism and the modern urban from a policy-oriented perspective, combining tourism views with dialogue of city types, matters, and demanding situations. Research-based analyses addressing managerial matters and comparing coverage implications are defined, and a finished set of case reviews is gifted to illustrate practices and regulations in numerous city contexts. A key message is that tourism guidelines may be conceived as built-in city rules that advertise tourism functionality as a way of fostering city caliber and the wellbeing and fitness of neighborhood groups, e.g., by way of caliber areas, employment, accessibility, innovation, and studying possibilities. as well as highlighting the importance of city tourism on the subject of key city demanding situations, the e-book displays at the hazards and tensions linked to its improvement, together with the increase of anti-tourism routine as a response to touristification, cultural commodification, and gentrification. realization is attracted to asymmetries within the expenditures and advantages of the town tourism phenomenon, and the supposedly unavoidable trade-off among the pursuits of citizens and travelers is significantly questioned.

There follow four distinct, yet closely interrelated, analytical domains for urban tourism research. 1 Travellers’ Needs, Preferences and Tastes Awareness of the proliferation of tourist niches has increased (Novelli 2005). And as micro-niches become global in a fast-expanding outbound tourism market, they play a key role in the development of a variety of tourism ‘products’. In other words, it is evident that the tourism industry has become much more fragmented in response to a growth of tourists’ special interests (Lisle 2007).

An emerging shift of perspective is described below. e. the city tourism phenomenon. The set of spaces, activities and actors that should be observed when studying city tourism seems to be expanding. While consolidated analytical approaches are not forgotten—since they are still meaningful to city tourism analyses—emerging issues take part in a renewed framework for urban tourism, thus enriching, complementing, or instead in some cases 32 C.
