Venice Sustainable Tourism

Venice sustainable tourism aims to contribute to the preservation of the city!

Venice Sustainable Tourism is a complex issue. Tourism is the main economic resource for Venice, however it is causing a series of side effects. This is one of the most controversial matters Venice is currently facing. Tourism in Venice has reached a level of criticality that represents the  antithesis of “sustainable tourism”.

Venice is one of the most important cities of Art in the world, but a large part of its visitors don’t come to see its cultural attractions. Tourism industry has grown exponentially in the last few years, and Venice has become the synonym for “city overwhelmed by tourism”.

Based on recent studies, one of the crucial aspects of Venice tourism is that most visitors do not come to the city to discover its historical heritage. They are instead attracted exclusively by its peculiar atmosphere and its environment. Apparently it’s enough to admire Venice from outside, maybe from a gondola or a vaporetto. Very few visitors take the time to deepen aspects and places related to her history, art and culture.

Over the years we dedicated ourselves to the promotion of initiatives aimed at the dissemination of Venetian culture. We contributed to the restauration of some Venetian works of art. Having studied in depth subjects related to the international law for cultural heritage, UNESCO and sustainable tourism, we decided to design some of our tours to  draw attention to responsible tourism in Venice, in order to contribute to the preservation of this unique city .

In 1987 Venice was included on UNESCO World Heritage List  on the basis of all six foreseen criteria. You can find all documents about Venice as World Heritage Site at this link.
