French towns impose tourist passes and quotas in bid to tackle overtourism

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people travel, with tourism gaining new patterns, which in some cases isn’t welcome. So is the case in France, for the so-called “group tourism” that has been frequent across the streets of the country, especially in Paris.



Marseille, the oldest city in France, has introduced a tourist quota and reservation system to visit popular sites. Only 500 people will be given permission to visit the site, where usually 3,000 tourists arrive every day.



“Since its resounding success during the summer of 2020, the Calanques have been the victim of overcrowding in July and August. This damages the flora and fauna that are nevertheless protected in the park. To fight against this phenomenon, the PNN is launching an unprecedented action for a natural space: a system of daily reservations,” a tourism official said.
