Spring 2010 - Tourist card
The tourist card project aims to provide tourists a practical and economic product that allows them to make the most out of the touristic offers of the territory. Its design is derived from the need of exploiting resources in the area, making them known to potential users and offering them in the most accessible format. The study was conducted in two phases: 1. international benchmark to identify the best practices of existing tourist cards, 2. empirical investigation on the behavior of tourists and their preferences for various types of tourist cards in Ticino.
