Cultural Tourism is Going Mainstream

More and more people are becoming aware of cultural diversity, and the magnificent ways in which “difference” can open our awareness of the world. Cultural tourism is going mainstream. For decades, cultural tourism was not even a means of describing those of us who had an insatiable need to experience other cultures. Now, with the internet, and the threads of connection, we seek experiences that allow us to have a glimpse into the diversity of people and culture all over the world. This has been framed as “cultural tourism.” In fact, the first event dedicated to cultural tourism is about to occur in Italy.
