Quote:
In July roughly 2,000 Venetians protested against tourism ruining their city, the knock-on effects of which include rising rent and pollution from cruise ships.


Quote:
One region which made headlines this summer due to tourist numbers is the Isle of Skye in Scotland, with newspapers reporting that police had advised visitors against visiting the island unless they had booked a room. Lochaber and Skye Police later sent out a tweet saying that they did not want to turn people away, but instead "just want(ed) people to be prepared."


Quote:
San Sebastian, a picturesque tourist destination in northern Spain's Basque Country, has been plagued by anti-tourism protests this summer. Organized by leftist youth group Ernai, one incident saw a tourist train stopped by demonstrators.....San Sebastian will announce "much more restrictive" rules on tourist apartments in the coming weeks, which are blamed for pushing up rent prices, and have closed almost 100 illegal rentals in the past two years, Goia said.


Quote:
Balearic Vice President and Minister for Tourism Gabriel Barcelo told CNBC via e-mail that a cap on the number of tourist beds on the islands was introduced on August 1 at approximately 623,600. This is figure is set to reduce in coming years.
