Sustainable tourism in Italy
Italy, the world's 4th largest tourist destination, is beginning to suffer significantly from mass tourism, especially in the most popular areas. This is the case of Venice, for example. Overtourism is not only a question of loss of quality of life for the inhabitants. Other popular areas such as Lombardy, Tuscany and Campania are seeing some places fill up with sometimes unscrupulous travellers.
In this context, several initiatives are being launched to promote sustainable tourism in Italy. Venice has introduced an entrance fee to limit mass tourism and finance the maintenance of the city. A partnership with Airbnb has also been developed to encourage rural tourism in Italy.
In terms of transport, the rail network is well developed and linked to that of France. There are daily trains from Paris to Milan and Turin. This means you can easily travel to Italy by rail and limit the carbon footprint of your journey. In the Big Boot, the train even offers some unusual experiences, such as getting on a boat to cross the arm of the sea between Sicily and the mainland. This is a travel adventure to be experienced!
