  6. Project Rationale • Venice’s present situation • Overpopulation of tourists and city deterioration • Excursionists spend less money per person than residential tourists • First step towards solution • Estimate the number of excursionists entering Venice

  8. Sommario del Progetto • Stima dei turisti escursionisti che arrivano a Venezia ogni anno • Sviluppo di una metodologia per contare gli escursionisti • Conteggio dei pendolari nei 6 accessi piu’ importanti di Venezia • Utilizzo del numero di turisti negli alberghi di Venezia nel 1997 e 1998 per estrapolare i conteggi su base annua • Raccomandazioni

  9. Development of the Methodology • Identification of main tourist transit sites • Development and testing of guidelines for visual identification of excursionist tourists • Determination of appropriate counting schedule

  10. Transit Points to Venice

  11. Established CountingLocations

  15. Excursionists vs. Residential Tourists • Residential tourists will have luggage: suitcases, large backpacks • Excursionists will have lighter backpacks, marsupial packs, or nothing at all

  16. Test of Visual Identification Excursionist Are you a tourist? Are you spending the night? Individual is identified visually YES YES Residential Tourist Residential Tourist Tourist Non-Tourist NO NO Excursionist Non-Tourist Correct?

  17. Results of Visual Identification Tests

  18. Consistency within the Group 93.0% 95.7%

  19. to Time of Counting Continuously from

  20. Counting Schedule Test Counting Window

  21. Days of Counting • One weekday and one weekend day

  22. Weeklong Fluctuation

  23. Six counting locations • Excursionist tourist counts • Continuous counting from 8.00 - 16.00 • One weekend and one weekday count Final Counting Procedures

  24. Synopsis of Fieldwork

  25. Actual Counts Weekday Weekend Total: 17.524 excursionists Total: 21.681 excursionists

  35. Project Conclusions • A proven visual identification method • Improvement of estimates • Recommendations for future work

  36. Validity of Estimates • External factors in sampling • Problems with the yearly estimate • Incomplete coverage of special events

  37. Weeklong Counts

  38. Seasonal Counts Primavera Inverno Estate Autunno

  39. Redentore Carnevale Special Events

  40. Survey of Excursionists

  41. A Future Project • A detailed plan for a yearlong excursionist count • Training manual for counters • Definitions of tourists, non-tourists, etc. • Accuracy testing regimen • Consistency testing regimen

  42. Details of the Extended Plan • Count for one week out of every month • All six primary locations simultaneously • Piazzale Roma, Tronchetto, Santa Lucia, Zattere, Bacino di San Marco, Punta Sabbioni • Count during all major festivals • Carnevale, Redentore, Ascension Day, Festival of Madonna delle Salute, Festival of Saint Mark, Regattas, etc… • Survey at the most visited locations as well as the entrances • Piazza San Marco, Rialto, Accademia
