Art heritage cities are popular tourist destinations but for many of them overcrowding is becoming an issue. In this paper, we address the problem of modeling and analytically studying the ow of tourists along the narrow alleys of the historic center of a heritage city. We initially presenta mean field game model, where both continuous and switching decisional variables are introduced to respectively describe the position of a tourist andthe point of interest that he/she may visit. We prove the existence of a mean field equilibrium. A mean field equilibrium is Nash-type equilibrium in the case of infinitely many players. Then, we study an optimization problem for an external controller who aims to induce a suitable mean field equilibrium.
