Abstract

The search for a sustainable development (in our case sustainable tourism) inescapably comes across with the concept of (tourism) carrying capacity, i.e. with the idea of the existence and possible identification, for both macro and micro destinations, of a maximum number of visitors beyond which the costs of tourism growth more than offset its benefits.
