The Planning Sustainable Tourism in the Northern Lagoon Park of Venice project, sponsored by the Assessorato all'Ambiente and the Assessorato all'Urbanistica, examined the islands contained within the northern lagoon park boundary and sites they contained. Through the collection of previously existing information and the integration of data collected in the field, the project team compiled sustainable databases with respect to the points of interest in the park. Visitable points of interest were identified through the analysis of comprehensive databases and GIS maps of forts, churches, bell towers, museums, nature areas, bird watching areas, cycling paths,rental areas, restaurants, docks, and preexisting transportation routes. Recommended itineraries were developed comprised of established visitable points of interest containing related sites, as well as a general itinerary for average tourists.
