Abstract

Major tourism attractions are emerging as internationally acclaimed hubs of
visits that both detract from visits to other cultural sites and the nonsustainability of these most-visited sites. As visitors are provided with authentic
cultural heritage, the offer of specific experiences rooted in local history and
the preserved cultural legacy of communities adds to a deeper touristic
experience. The paper discusses the aims to improve policies that enable small
and medium-sized towns and regions to valorise their cultural heritage through
innovative assessments and knowledge sharing assisted by interaction with
local public and private stakeholders.
