Commission's guidance on how to safely resume travel and reboot Europe's tourism in 2020 and beyond

Tourism is a major economic activity in the European Union with a wide-ranging impact on economic growth, employment, and social development. It can be a powerful tool in fighting economic decline and unemployment. Nevertheless, the tourism sector faces a series of challenges.
The European Commission works to address these with policies and actions, for this reason on 15 June 2020 they launched Re-open EU. The website and mobile provide real-time information on borders and available transport and tourism services in EU countries.

European Destinations of Excellence 

Have you ever heard of EDEN? This is the acronym of European Destinations of Excellence. It is a project promoting sustainable tourism development models across Europe. This one launched in 2006 is based on national competitions - decided by the Commission with an annual theme - that takes place every year and result in the selection of a tourist "destination of excellence" for each participating country. 
The aims of the project are:
  • promote sustainable tourism,
  • enhance the visibility of emerging and lesser-known tourist destinations in Europe,
  • create awareness of Europe's tourism diversity and quality
On 19 July 2020, the Commission announced the award of the 2019 European Destinations of Excellence (EDEN) to 17 European tourist destinations. Let's discover what they are.
