Introduction

In the last few years, tourism has become a fundamental element for global socio-economic development. As a matter of fact, the last decades have been extremely positive for tourism, as travelers from all over the world have demanded new destinations and travel opportunities. As a result, the possibilities for tourism have become extremely rich and diverse. In fact, tourism nowadays is very different from the 18th Century’s European Grand Tour, which was understood as an educational and initiatory journey.



Consequently, at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, traditional tourism has been complemented by new modalities, which have flourished in order to satisfy new demands, such as adventure tourism, wine tourism, oleotourism, monumental tourism, gastronomic tourism or health tourism, to name but a few examples. These branches of tourism, which provide a more dynamic and sustainable vision of tourism, offer a greater de-seasonalisation of the sector and broaden the range of potential tourists, contributing to its scope.
