Cultural tourism has notably experienced a burgeoning growth over the recent years. The notion of culture has been widely studied in the social sciences, and of course it occupies a central position in the tourist system. Culture is a very hard concept to grasp, and today cultural tourism faces serious challenges. This book presents eight high-quality chapters that address the problem of heritage and cultural tourism in the new normal. Cultural tourism offers an opportunity to recover tourism after the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is a source of conflict among stakeholders. This book offers ways to overcome the obstacles to heritage consumption and lays the foundations for a new understanding of cultural and heritage tourism. The authors are well-versed and come from different cultural backgrounds and nations.
