Tourists in Historic Townsexamines the relationship of culture, heritage, conservation and tourism development in historic towns and urban centres, debating the impacts of tourism on historic towns and the role tourism plays in conservation and urban continuity. The main focus of the book is medium sized historic towns and historic quarters which are attractive to the tourist market, but historic quarters in large cities and smaller rural settlements are not excluded. Alongside over a hundred examples of historic towns, five historic towns are discussed as case studies: Granada, Spain; York, England; Mdina, Malta; Antalya, Turkey and Quedlingburg, Germany.

Editorial Reviews

"Orbasil's deeply researched and firmly structured book is timely and apposite.... the book is a useful contribution to the literature on tourism and conservation in historic towns....."-"Urban Design, 2001 ..."the author has widely focused on a series of detailed case studies....employed in a way that both elucidates the theory and makes it relevant to the real dilemmas of planning and, indeed, living in those historic towns that play host to the global tourism industry.."-"Journal of Architectural Conservation, 2000 ..."a text such as this is to be welcomed...This book is well produced and contains much useful information and I can see it being a useful student text and perhaps a source for practitioners...."-John Pendlebury, Centre for Research on European Urban Environments, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, "Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 44(4), 577-581, 2001, 2001
