Tourism is the third socio-economic activity of the European Union and constitutes an important engine of development.
At the same time, tourism is essential not only from an economic and social point of view but also for its strong effects on the environment.
For this reason, the environment and the territory are both primary elements for tourism and its development.
This contribution discusses the need for sustainable tourism and, within this vision, addresses the theme of "return tourism" with the connected enhancement of small villages.
This contribution examines not only socio-economic aspects but also discusses tourism-territorial policies to be implemented in a sustainable tourism perspective, both in the immediate and the long term
