  1. Tourism in Venice Emiliano Ramieri

  2. Tourist typologies • Overnight staying Tourists: stay in Venice for more than one day • Day trippers: visit Venice in a day • Direct day trippers: move daily from their residential place • Improper direct day trippers: their tourist destination is Venice, but their accommodation is outside Venice historical centre • Indirect day trippers: have a different tourist destination (mainly seaside resorts in Cavallino and Chioggia) and visit Venice as an integrative destination • Transits Data referred to 1996; source: COSES, 2001

  3. Overnight staying tourists in Venice Source: data – APT; elaboration – Statistics and Research Bureau of Venice Municipality In 2006 about 2.000.000 arrivals (+6.7%) and 5.400.000 presences (+9.4%)

  4. Overnight staying tourists in Venice Municipality (1) Source: data – APT; elaboration – Statistics and Research Bureau of Venice Municipality Municipality = Venice + Mestre and Marghera + Cavallino (till 1999) + Lido In 1999 about 3.200.000 arrivals and 11.260.000 presences

  5. Overnight staying tourists in Venice Municipality (2) Data referred to 1999; source: APT

  6. Tourists and day trippers Data referred to 2002; source: Mag.Acque – Corila, 2008 • High incidence of day trippers (about 75%) • Overnight staying tourists generate greater contribution to total turn over (about 60%), while day-trippers economic contribution is relatively marginal • Benefits generated by Venice tourism are distributed over a larger area, also including other municipalities • Socio-economic and environmental impacts tends to concentrate on Venice historical centre

  7. Monthly distribution 1 1 2 2 3 Monthly distribution (data referred to 2005) of presences of overnight staying tourists in Venice (1); Mestre and Marghera (2); Lido (3) (Source: Statistics and Research Bureau of Venice Municipality) Indirect day trippers prefer summer period, while direct day trippers are concentrated in the May-September period

  8. Tourism impacts on the urban system • Increase in prices of real estates, goods and services • Congestion of main tourist areas and of public transportation • Replacement of no-tourist economic activities and urban functions • Mono-specialization of economic activities • Increase in waste generation and resource consumption • Increase in transportation demand and wave impacts on the urban infrastructure

  9. Tourist carrying capacity Calculation of the indicator is rather difficult, Few estimations are available • According to Canestrelli and Costa (1991) • Maximum daily carrying capacity for Venice is about 25.000 visitors (11.000 overnight tourist and 14.000 day trippers) • This limits was exceeded in 156 days in 1987 and 216 days in 2000 • Optimal daily carrying capacity is lower: about 22.000 visitors (11.200 overnight tourist and 10.800 day trippers)

  10. Indicator of tourist pressure (1) Ratio between yearly number of visitors and resident population Data referred to 1990 and to overnight staying tourists and day trippers; source: Van der Borg and Russo, 1997

  11. Indicator of tourist pressure (2) Data referred to overnight staying tourists; source: Van der Borg and Russo, 1997; Statistics and Research Bureau of Venice Municipality Residential population trend source: Statistics and Research Bureau of Venice Municipality

  12. Indicator of tourist congestion • According to Indovina (1988), public space of Venice historical centre is utilized according to this general distribution: 34% tourists; 49.3% residents; 12.6% commuters; 4.1% students • In main tourist areas tourist % is higher: 56.9% on average and 66.9% in the July-October period (Di Maria et al., 2003) Distribution of accommodation structures in November 2003 (source: Zanon et al., 2004)

  13. Venice Ecological footprint Data referred to 2002; source: ARPAV and Regione Veneto, 2002; Tiezzi (2004); WWF (2002) Head ecological footprint (hectares) Ecological footprint of Venice Province is influenced by tourists. Contribution of overnight staying tourist is about 8.5% (Tiezzi, 2004), while day trippers contribution is unknown

  14. Tourism impact on Venice Lagoon • Main environmental impacts of tourism on Venice Lagoon are linked to water transportation demand and relative negative effects on lagoon’s morphologies • Tourism water transportation contribution is about 13% during the summer period Boats per day during summer 2002. Results of model simulation (source: Mag.Acque – Technital, 2002)
