Analyzing cultural routes from a multidimensional perspective

Wided Majdoub

Abstract


The objective of this work is to examine cultural routes from a multidimensional and hence a multidisciplinary perspective. Economic impacts and geographical sides are the most studied aspects. We want to show that cultural routes are also a form of cultural consumption and a form of experience. Considering the cultural routes under these different angles allow us to broaden the debate and to show that beyond the geographical and / or economic aspects, cultural itineraries the cultural routes constitutes then a new concept, which leads to a new kind of heritage, and thus respond to new tourists’ expectations, more experiential.

Keywords
