Venice is visited by millions of tourists every year, which makes life difficult for the city’s residents. To help solve the problems tourism brings, the team built a proposal for tourism management. To construct this proposal, the team determined the current occupancy of the city, estimated the maximum safe occupancy, using international standards, and drew on the most feasible features of five existing tourism management proposals.
