Abstract

In the poster child of overtourism, social movements against tourism emerged as a reaction to vastly unsustainable tourist flows that have had a dramatic and transformational impact on the life of Venetians. While Venice's unique geographical position as a historic city, located on an island and surronded by a lagoon, adds to the complexity of how tourism flows are managed effectively, this work offers an approach to measurements are translated into stress indicators associated with characteristics of tourism unsustanability, with implications on the lives of local residents, and serve as a useful tool for understanding the underlying causes of anti-tourism and as warning signs in benchmarking overtourism in other destinations.
